Hello fellow Max Fischer Players... I need some help. I am currently writting an essay on the work of Wes Anderson (my favorite director) and I need some help. I had written a similar paper three years ago but I have now lost it so I am trying to refresh my memory on the topic of---common themes (ie elements, occurances0 and this is what I have so far--

- costumes
-same casting
-Childrens interaction with adults
-dreams of granduer- the dreamer and overacheiver
-names based on real people
-betrayl, unrequited love, freindship
-long shots, long takes, on location shooting ( the creation of an un absolute time an place prevelent in each film)
- opening sequences- stage- chapters in a book


what am i forgetting ? or do you have any intersting comments to make on any of these or sources? I know if anyone can help me a bit it would be fellow fans. So .. go crazy and impress us all, thank you for your help i appreciate it more than you know- Rushmore Yankee-- Andrea

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

haha I assure you that I am not a man. Thats funny becaus emy great grandfather would always scold my parents, because he would always say " you name her Andrea, that is a boys name where I am from. So he called me AJ,.... But anyways thanks for the help so far. I think I know what I am going to write on. One part I am excited to write about is how Wes can put music to an image so well, I just thought about that.:)

You could probably say something about J.D. Salinger's influence on Wes Anderson.

Also:
-Water
-The passing of glory (max, the tenenbaums)

And you could write about the relationships (or the lack thereof) between young people and fathers and/or father figures (Rushmore, Tennanbaums).

Or you could talk about recurring actors - Kumar.  :-D
