Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences

From July 12 to August 31, the Northwest Film Center in Portland will present “Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences”, an opportunity to know not only his work, but the films who has inspired him along his whole career.

Starting with 1998’s “Rushmore,” the Northwest Film Center program will feature screenings of Anderson’s eight features, including now classics like “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.”  Matt Zoller Seitz, the film critic and RogerEbert.com editor-in-chief who literally wrote the book on Anderson (“The Wes Anderson Collection”) will introduce “The Royal Tenenbaums.”

“Wes’s World” will also include showings of films by François Truffaut, Jacques Cousteau, Werner Herzog, Jean Renoir and Hal Ashby, among others.

Death and Dying in the Films of Wes Anderson

From Peter Tonguette’s new series on grief and mourning in film:

When I decided to have a look at Wes Anderson’s films for the first time since my father’s death, I wasn’t sure what to expect. In my mind’s eye, I pictured nothing but the joyous derring-do of Anderson’s protagonists, like Max Fisher leaving a case of bees in Herman Blume’s hotel room or Raleigh St. Clair listening to a private investigator’s report on his wife Margot Tenenbaum’s extramarital activities. As far as I was concerned, these movies represented the same thing Bringing Up Baby did: a happier time, now lost.
