Wes Anderson’s Top 10 Movies, and the Color Trilogy.
I recently read an article where Wes Anderson picked his 10 favorites movies from the Criterion Collection. Guillermo del Toro does the same here. Some of their picks are “Pigs and Battleships“, “The Insect Woman“, and “Kuroneko.” Clearly, I have a LOT of movie watching to do this Summer.

Just like “trunk shots” are Quentin Tarantino’s visual trademark, using a high-angle for the camera, and pointing it straight down seems to be Wes Anderson’s fetish. Check this out.
This is yet another of the many differences between the two great directors. If you are aware of other directors’ trademarks, please send them our way.
