Film Review - The French Dispatch


Writer/director Wes Anderson has been away from live-action moviemaking for quite some time, taking a break from his routine to mastermind 2018’s “Isle of Dogs,” an animated adventure. 2014’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” was Anderson’s last traditional endeavor, and it was one of his best, combining his tremendous love for the European experience and silly business with incredibly game actors, launching a lively farce that also increased the idiosyncrasy of his filmmaking vision, miraculously doing so without smothering the picture.
