"Wes Windows": a Moving Visual Essay

2017-04-20 2

Auteurs are not your regular blockbuster filmmakers -- they're visionaries whom will do almost anything in pursuit of a materialization of that vision.

The first scene of auteur Wes Anderson's debut film was a clip of a window opening. This could mean many things -- whether looking out, opening opportunities, greeting to a new day, voyeurism, etc. Many of the Wes film-verse does so. And he continues to open more windows throughout his oeuvre.
