A vision of 2000, drawn by Jean-Marc Côté and other French artists to be used on cigar boxes and postcards, for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. It’s actually kind of sad how little of this we have. Who wouldn’t want to travel by whale?
Empirical Pictures: The Final Images of Wes Anderson
The cinema of Wes Anderson has always been rooted firmly within the notion of theatrical storytelling. This can be presented in a myriad of ways. Be it through his ability to meticulously craft mise-en-scene, displaying bold and almost storybook-like frames, or through his tendency to do away with multiple cuts within a scene, allowing the actors to walk through sequences as would be done in the theatre. His final images are not without similar traits. Each frame serves to traditionally provide a refreshed equilibrium, whilst also alluding to an intrinsic sense of hope and a journey that has not yet finished.
