Staff Reviews

A beautiful and comprehensive overview of the work and working method of writer/director Wes Anderson. Films such as Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou are explored through illustrations, production photographs, notes, interviews and an examination of Anderson’s wide-ranging influences. Also included is an introduction by Michael Chabon. (Brian)


Wes Anderson is one of the most influential voices from the past two decades of American cinema. A true auteur, Anderson is known for the visual artistry, inimitable tone, and idiosyncratic characterizations that make each of his films--"Bottle Rocket," "Rushmore," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "The Darjeeling Limited," "Fantastic Mr. Fox," and "Moonrise Kingdom"--instantly recognizable as "Andersonian." "The Wes Anderson Collection "is the first in-depth overview of Anderson's filmography, guiding readers through his life and career. Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish--and thoroughly original. Praise for "The Wes Anderson Collection: " "In "The Wes Anderson Collection," Seitz expands a series of video essays on Anderson's influences, illuminating as much of Anderson's process as possible in a massive, beautifully rendered volume. Although it looks (and sometimes reads) like a coffee table book, "The Wes Anderson Collection" brings together style and substance to provide a loving homage to Anderson's films and moviemaking in general."" --The A.V. Club "
