Wes Anderson and his eye for symmetry
With Wes Anderson’s latest flick The Grand Budapest Hotel just around the corner (although it’s been released pretty much everywhere already except here in Australia), there’s no better time to celebrate how much symmetry is involved in his cinematography. Unless he were to release a film in the future focusing on the idea of symmetry, which would be a ridiculously good time to celebrate how much symmetry is involved in his cinematography. But this is no perfect world, and we have to play with the hand we’re dealt.
This is a neat video that compiles all the symmetrical shots from all of Anderson’s films, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited, The Fantastic Mr Fox and Moonrise Kingdom. Like the Kubrick One-Point perspective video, it sheds a little insight into the consistencies of a filmmaker over the course of their career.
