"I couldn't even begin to think about knowing how to answer that question"

Why do I like Wes Anderson?

Is it because he uses Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and the Wilson brothers as regulars? And they are all favorites, especially Murray? Is it because I secretly love the uber-hip playlists that expose a new generation to John Lennon and the Velvet Underground? Or is it the enduring color scheme of yellows, oranges and green that permeate his films? And that all of these elements give his movies a distinct style that is simultaneously comforting AND oh-so-easy to mockingly imitate (a respectful homage, of course)?

I guess it's a mystery.

The Royal Tenenbaums= So wonderful.

Or it would be wonderful if I watched rated "R" movies. Which... sometimes I do. Usually if they are Wes Anderson movies.

PS: I like your blog more than most other blogs which is why I am creepy about it. But I think we have a lot in common, so that's neat.

That parody is the best! I've had a man crush on the guy who made it/played Peter Parker for months.

It's funny that you should write about this now. I watched (sort of) The Life Aquatic over the weekend, and loved it. It was so quirky. I agree that his use of color is fascinating.
