Wes Anderson couldn’t help being himself. Watch any movie he’s directed (or, heck, even advertisement). Each scene can only be composed by him. Symmetry, texture and color are often imitated but never reproduced. However, not everyone is enamored with his dry style and wit. He has loads of fans, myself included, but he also has many detractors.
When he joined “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, Anderson thought he would completely serve Roald Dahl and a predominantly childish audience, putting his overwhelming style back. But Wes must Wes, and as he said Film4the film becomes much more personal than he expected:
“What happened was, as we worked on the film step by step, writing it, but after writing it, I became more and more invested in it than I expected, and it became more and more personal, and I’ve always felt like we were trying to do Roald Dahl, but I also think we’re finding a lot of room to invent our own things to make this happen. a movie that I feel is a very personal film, which I feel very close to, that feels like my work, but it doesn’t really look like what I necessarily envision as a series. hit cartoon.”
Wes Anderson made a Wes Anderson movie that wasn’t aimed at his usual audience, and the movie it was targeted for didn’t know what to do either. So, sadly, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” didn’t make much of a financial impression. Oddly enough, Anderson’s poor stop-motion sequel “Isle of Dogs” did about $11 million more domestic. Wes fans knew to figure it out at the time.
