Over the years, as people began to learn more and more about my love for film, people often asked me "What is your favourite movie/film?" And I would always, always reach for this gem practically NOBODY has heard of or seen. I would say 'The Royal Tenembaums' and every single time, someone would ask, 'what?' and I'll say the title again and then explain the film. I would also state how funny it is and go over some scenes and some of the smallest yet hilarious things, but I always lost people and rightly so. The Royal Tenembaums is a film to be watched and not explained. A bit like 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', also directed by Wes Anderson. It took me a while to get to watch it as I got to the drive-thru a little late and the set-up wasn't working great at first. But when I did eventually watch it although not as brilliant as Royal, it still carries his flavour.
This Trailer looks like Wes is at it again and I love it. It does look like it is more Grand Budapest than Royal, but you can tell, it has Wes all over it. His humour is quirky and dark. He would touch upon really serious matters in a fun way without pulling you out of the movie. Definitely one of my most favourite and overlooked directors. A true artist. Please tell me that shot with the people shooting at each other in black and white isn't comical and artistic at the same time? And to close off the trailer, "Don't cry in my Office" and the boy looks up and the sign says 'no crying'. I can't wait for this to be out!!!
Directed by Wes Anderson and starring Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson
