    I'm pretty sure that's just how scenes are generally shot.

      That's not correct, and the reason why may enlighten you a bit as to why Wes Anderson is so appreciated by so many of us. Think about a shot of a character's face with a visible background. Just the size of the lens that is used in this sort of shot and the distance of the subject from the camera will completely change if the face appears distorted or flat, as well as how much of the background is shown and whether or not it is in focus, and how distant the items in the background will appear. All of these can be different, depending on the lens and distance of the subject from the lens, and this is even when the size of the face remains constant. When you take into account that the size of the face can vary, and that the lighting and shutter speed and playback speed and color filters can all vary, then you would conclude that there is no "general" way to shoot anything.

    Anyone else think there's some not so subtle indications of a Moonrise Kingdom release in the future?

      I'd be completely shocked if CC didn't continue releasing all of Anderson's work. They've done everything so far; just happens to be a few years behind. I think it'll be another year or two before MK gets a release. How lovely would it be for GBH's initial release to be through Criterion?

    The Grand Budapest Hotel needs to be released directly to Criterion after theatrical exhibition PLEASE!!! Besides, Fox has now complete dropped their iTunes digital copy inclusion which means I'll be buying it used when it comes out.

    one of the most original interpretations of an English childhood favorite as Wes Anderson turns on the charm for one special Mr Fox and family. due to their wild origins all attempts at civility fail miseralby but in that fall from grace a necessity to work together to survive serves as a base for some of the wittiest, most original, and crackpot humor for a film I watch over and over. This is the best Criterion release since the Zatoichi mega disc box set. I love this film and can't stop watching it. someone call me a doctor please. thanks.
