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.

Check out the program’s trailer below.  The full lineup can be found here, on the Northwest Film Center’s website.

Aligning your political brand with Wes Anderson’s is a good idea if you’re a liberal candidate running for office in a liberal area—remember, Providence is home to Brown University. The Wes Anderson schtick may well be the liberal equivalent of shooting a gun in your campaign ad.

No endorsement intended. Actually, this guy is awesome.
