CineMasters: Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson’s precise vision, detached humour and particular style are unmistakable. One viewing isn’t enough to take in everything contained across the many layers of his intricately constructed stories, and their idiosyncratic characters. As his new film Isle of Dogs goes on general release, we are delighted to take the opportunity to revisit five of his earlier works: Rushmore, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
