The other night I was talking about movies and reminded myself about  my love for Wes Anderson's films, in the same time realising it's been a while since I've watched any.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is one of my absolute favourite movies of all time, so full of detail that I've been able to watch it over and over again. And so are all the Anderson films, very visual, with a subtle humor that works. All the worlds and characters Anderson creates have always appealed to me and somedays you just want to get lost in them. Last night we were filming until three in the morning so today is really one of those days; my tired mind just wants to soak into a pastel coloured space where everything is specific, tidy and everyone deeply dysfunctional.

(The internet provded me with screencaps 1, 2, 3)

What is your favourite Anderson movie? I actually haven't seen them all (yet!) though; Rushmore still to go! And a new round of Zissou, of course, always.

I am also such a Wes Anderson fan! My favourite is The Moonrise Kingdom, followed closely by the Royal Tenenbaums. But I didn't like Steve Zissou that much, to be honest.

I absolutely love Wes Anderson. My favorite is Moonrise Kingdom, then Darjeeling Limited, then Budapest Hotel and then Steeve Zissou. I love that during the whole movie of Steeve Zissou you have a Brazilian singer singing David Bowie songs...they all catch perfectly the moment and this singer makes part of the "décor". Love it.

That's such a difficult question to answer! I too haven't seen Rushmore, but it's on my to-do list. I can't pick a favorite, but my top three are The Grand Budapest Hotel, Darjeeling Limited, and The Life Aquatic. I've seen them all dozens and dozens of times and never seem to get sick of them.

Rushmore is my favorite of all of his films!! Not too sure why - it's not the most visually striking, but it really stuck with me.

Have fun! xo
