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.
