Hello and welcome to yet another episode of Directors of Cinema, the podcast that highlights the careers of cinema’s most prominent directors. Each week, host Matthew Goudreau and a guest discuss selected works of a director chosen by the guest.
On this episode, Matt welcomes fellow TYF writer Yasmin Kleinbart to the airwaves. After a brief diversion into talking about some upcoming summer films, they finally get onto the main topic: Wes Anderson. Although his style has received praise from fans and critics alike, his detractors frequently argue that his films may be a little too over-stylized to compensate for a lack of story. Do Matt and Yasmin feel that Anderson’s films are a perfect unison of visual and narrative storytelling? Listen to find out.
The films discussed in this episode include:
- Bottle Rocket
- The Royal Tenenbaums
- The Darjeeling Limited
- Fantastic Mr. Fox
- The Grand Budapest Hotel
