Dear Wes Anderson,
It is, as always, a great treat to be invited into the inner workings of your mind. The magical worlds that you allow me to traverse are continually intriguing and always diverse. By transporting me to ‘foreign’ places through eras long forgotten, you continue to give me the wonderful gift of true escapism while offering me a different lens through which to view things. On top of that, you spoil me by introducing me countless interesting characters that have ridiculous flaws, superficial depth and so so SO many crushing secrets-delightful.
In your most recent delight, Moonrise Kingdom, you have done it again and for that I thank you. I must also thank you for the wonderful cast that surprised and amused me to no end. I may have laughed louder than others through out the entire film while in the theater but how could I not? Everyone from the scouts to the Bruce Willis, who was in rare form, were quirky, a touch depressing and, per usual, tremendous. Quick side note, please work with Brad Pitt before you stop making movies. The subtle humor in every scene, be it in the dialogue, carefully set-up scenery or the score, kept a continual smirk on my face that has just returned. Your enchanting ’60s island world was wonderful and I plan on visiting again in 6 to 8 weeks. Bravo!
So in conclusion, I must thank you. I doubt any film you make can top The Royal Tenenbaums, my personal favorite, but you approach it every time I can’t wait until for the next adventure you’ll take me on.
Until next time,
