Books in the Films of Wes Anderson (5 pics)




Luis Azevedo , founder of The A To Z Review , passionate by cinema and Wes Anderson , wanted to show the presence of literature and the book’s materiality in the movies of this director. Entitled Bibliophilia – Books in the Films of Wes Anderson , the video offers a transversal study of books as a present physical and aesthetical object, read or hold by characters and often captured on a high angle shot, and also his systematic use of a narrator as a character or a voice-off. Wes Anderson integrates also pages of books edited like a diptych in a movie sequence, in order to operate a connection text/image, and highlights the literary inspirations of each protagonist. Luis wanted to demonstrate that through his artworks, Wes Anderson kept linking books to memory by starting and ending his films by a book image, as if everything the viewer has just seen came from a novel’s reading.
