Introduction

This blog will critically discuss the films of American film director and screenwriter Wes Anderson for my work experience module at university. Anderson’s films appeal to me as rather than being plot-driven, they focus on the development of the characters as people rather than devices to further the story. Anderson’s work deals with poignant and delicate themes of alienation and depression whilst still maintaining a dry humour that keeps the characters realistic, whether in almost ridiculous dysfunctional families (The Royal Tennenbaums), on a submarine (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) or even as talking animals in a children’s story (The Fantastic Mr. Fox). 

I intend to look more in depth at my favourite director’s work which will hopefully give me a greater appreciation for them as well as being an enjoyable university project.
