Is it just me or does it seem long overdue for a new Wes Anderson movie? Recently, while talking about the Rolling Stones with friends I thought about making a playlist of (some) songs from Wes Anderson movies; he really likes to repeat themes of fore-mentioned Rolling Stones, Orchestra clips, David Bowie via Seu Jorge, Alexandre Desplat, the Ramones and more. There is a lot of songs from all of his movies to cram into one playlist so I decided to do a small sampling over a variety of his films. Hopefully this will tide us all over until 2018 when Isle of Dogs is supposed to premiere. Until then…
Ah, Wes Anderson. One of today’s most sought after millennial cult following movie directors out there. With so many great classics, sadly this 6er does not include every movie of his with a pairing, but if you’re going to have a movie marathon make sure to also check out Grand Budapest Hotel and Fantastic Mr. Fox!
I admit, for someone who works in Hollywood, I have one specific weakness – I’m terrible at remembering the name of that guy from that thing. The TV & movie industry has hundreds of talented actors who I’ve seen in roles without really remembering their names. The 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon game has always been a challenge for me, and I even get A-listers confused from time to time. Nowhere is my confusion greater than in mixing up the actors who appear in the films of Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, & the Coen brothers (Joel & Ethan). It’s time to fix that.
