    The latest comedy by Wes Anderson, Moonrise Kingdom, had its world premiere yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival, and was very warmly received. We hope Anderson is having better luck communicating with French interviewers than he did when he and his Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou coscreenwriter Noah Baumbach were guests on the Italian talk show Mondo Monda, hosted by the inimitable writer and critic Antonio Monda. Here are the first three minutes of that conversation (included as a supplement on the Criterion edition of The Life Aquatic).

    I can't hardly wait for the (hopefully) future release of Steve Zissou on Blu-ray. It's one of my favorites films!

    I meant a Steve Zissou Criterion Collection Blu-ray release. This is extremely important, haha!

    Just the thought of Baumbach's deadpan and Anderson's description of himself as a "regular optimist" are enough to get me laughing. Love the over the top use of "Halloween orange," even in the freeze-framed end credits. A truly wonderful spoof.
