This guy’s done The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore, and a few other films. I’ve seen the first two mentioned and I’ll be watching Rushmore soon. But just from two films I really like his style. There’s something really entertaining about his cinematography (he’s pretty much obsessed with the rule of thirds) and how he uses color and contrast. His films are comedic but also emotional. For some reason he reminds me vaguely of Tim Burton and David Lynch (Burton with his quirkiness, Lynch with the strange characters and situations). I always wondered how he developed such a unique style.
What do you guys think of Wes?
