Wes Anderson’s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is now showing in limited release NOWHERE near me, DRATS! Cinematic frustration has left me scouring the web for all things Wes Anderson hoping to find an obscure, secret handshake venue releasing the film in the southeast. It is Wes Anderson, it COULD happen. During my on-line reconnaissance, I ran across this little commercial gem from 2008. Anderson teamed up with Brad Pitt for SoftBank, a Japanese mobile communications company. The commercial takes inspiration from Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Anderson filmed Pitt in one continuous shot at a French seaside town.
Immensely entertaining and clever. Ursus Wehrli shares his vision for a cleaner, more organized, tidier form of art — by deconstructing the paintings of modern masters into their component pieces, sorted by color and size. Wehrli has multiple books on the subject available at Amazon Books.
