The Wes Anderson Collection, chapter 1

Matt Zoller Seitz wrote a book called The Wes Anderson Collection, that deconstructs each one of Anderson’s films, from the cinematography to the set design. It is essentially a “book-long interview” with Anderson about everything that has to do with him as an artist, his evolution, his inspiration, and history.
     Then Seitz did the Wes Anderson fans of the world a huge solid by adapting parts of the book into videos. Here is the first in the series.

Matt Zoller Seitz seems to have invested himself heavily in Wes Anderson's career. He says he recognised immediately that Anderson was not a filmmaker who made references, he had influences. (Love that line.)

Seitz speaks with authority due to his involvement with Anderson's first project, the inside knowledge is fascinating.
