Wes Anderson
Anderson sticks to his guns: he hasn’t taken any of that advice about de-aestheticizing his movies and imposing some austerity on his personality. And left to his own devices, he composed one of his sweetest and funniest portraitures to date: a first-love chronicle that’s heartbreaking not through onscreen tragedy but through lovely, hilarious frailty.
