""Moonrise Kingdom" (Wes Anderson, Willis, Norton, Swinton...)"


  

          

“Set in the 1960s, a pair of young lovers flee their New England island town, prompting a local search party led by the Sheriff and the girl’s parents to fan out and find them.”

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eP0QJ_Ba1Bs

Where’s Wes’s trademark Futura typeface? The cast and cinematography look promising though.

that image of Edward Norton as the nerdly camp leader is priceless. everyone else looks like they're not *quite* in the right film but in a perfectly thoughtful way.

i have to admit i'm kinda intrigued based on the cast tho.

I thoroughly enjoy Tenenbaums, though it's no Rushmore.

Aquatic is deeply flawed, and I'm not a big fan.

Darjeeling did nothing for me.

I'll let you know what I think.

Felt honest. Lord knows when I was 12, even though I didn't know SHIT about women, kissing, sex, etc., I definitely woulda jumped at the chance to find out, lol. Plus there are enough one-liners thrown in that it never gets uncomfortably intimate (to be honest, no encounters that are even remotely sexual when you're 12 are *truly* intimate anyway).

Anderson's style is at its strongest when presenting the world from a child's point of view-- it's really always children's-book-ish in both look and sound, so it's not a surprise that a movie about two kids would be one of his best.

There's less emphasis on the bittersweet here-- he never really leans on it, just allowing it to exist within the action instead of lingering (one of the main things I didn't like about Aquatic and Darjeeling, these turns to darkness that seemed to insist to the watcher that the films were "deep"). In fact, some of the more emotional moments are broken up by big laughs-- an instant classic Anderson one-liner comes from the kid during what could be a sad dark moment at one point.

Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman are by far the adults most at ease with the Anderson dialogue, but Willis' role is pretty tailored to him and Norton does good work. (I also was surprised by how comfortable Keitel seemed with his moments.) But the stars are the kids-- they give us a 60s European romance through 12 year olds, which not only had me consistently laughing but also got me strangely emotionally invested by the end. It's never as moving as Rushmore or the best parts of Tenenbaums, but it's definitely his best flick otherwise.

It'll all rely on whether you dig the kids or not. And although the romance will make some somewhat uncomfortable, it feels real and stays funny. Kudos to Anderson for pulling off at least one of the scenes that he does with that romance.

Loved the performances of the kids (the boy in particular had his own kind of nerd swag that was dope), as well as what Bruce and Edward Norton gave us. It seemed like Bill Murray was just there, not that that's a big complaint but it seemed if you got rid of him you wouldn't be missing very much, other than the chance to see Bill shirtless carrying an ax.

The story held together pretty well, I was glad that the kids running away didn't take up the entire run time. Loved the unpredictability of how everything played out.

I thought it was very cute, innocent (even with the kids dancing in their drawls by the lake) and inventive. I think that after this and The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Wes Anderson is back on track...

Is the Avon the only "art-house" in providence? That's the only one I know of. If so, that sucks, because they only have one fucking screen. I bet it will be at least a couple weeks before they show Moonrise Kingdom...

the kids here are grown-ups, and the grown-ups are kids -- it's role reversal, playing on Anderson's trademark of adult adolescence.

there's more gravity to the kids' actions (they fight with guns and knives; the adults throw shoes at each other), and they possess a candidness we seem to lose as adults. kids are direct -- Sam and Suzy speak their feelings, even if they harm. contrast that with the incompetent adults, who talk around their issues or keep them internalized with an audio diary. the chase for Sam and Suzy, coupled with a Biblical act, finally make few of them confront the difference.

as far as the aesthetic -- and that's a big part of every Anderson movie -- the visual storybook style is perfect. more reined in than some of his past work, and helped by a focus on kids (who play better to his idiosyncrasies than adults).

so far, my favorite film of the year.

was both acute and affectingly basic. as lawyers, I'm sure they analyzed every plus and minus before getting married -- yet their inability to communicate honestly drove them apart (megaphone = talking loud without saying anything). that bedroom scene was probably their most genuine moment in years.

what a good flick.

It leeps over a couple anderson flicks but still hits below Rushmore and Tenenbaums. not by much though.

this was a damn good watch with damn good performances. the quirkiness works in every way.

one of the scenes between the two young lovers could be seen as very awkward and inappropriate but it was actually so real and so genuine.

wow, i really loved it.

This movie was awesome. That dialogue was great to me, and the acting was perfect. There were parts I was laughing just watching them make faces at each other.

I will definitely buy this movie, cuz I will show a chick this movie and see if she likes it.

Easily my second favorite Wes flick after Royal Ts (and RT is in my top 10 of the last 12 years). I loved that he returned to that obsessive painterly framing of shots and keeping the colors of shots/scenes in the same palette / mood. that style of shooting just really keeps me inside of the film, geeking at the little things that bring frames to life.

the development of the characters is balanced and emotive, and the acting by the two main youth, Bruce, Norton, Tilda and McDormand is damn near perfection. Schwarts and Keitel's cameos were nice too.

it was a clever quiet comedy that was very dark at times, and used youth to tell an adult story. the scene once they get to what they eventually name MK is a bit pederast, but it works.

overall this is my favorite film of the year, tied with The Grey, and solidifies Wes as top 5 current working director in my book, really top 3 with PTA and Inarritu. i got his filmography as follows
1. RT
2. MK
3. Fox
4. TLA
5. DL
6. Rushmore (will never see or agree on this films greatness, ever. it bores me to shit at times)

Great flick. Great colors throughout the film. The scene with Sam & Bruce Willis' character was probably my favorite throughout the whole movie.

It's in my top 10 for the year (still have a few to see) for sure.

My ranking of Wes Anderson flicks:

1. Rushmore
2. Fantastic Mr. Fox
3. Moonrise Kingdom
4. The Life Aquatic
5. Bottle Rocket
6. Royal Tenenbaums

I didn't see Darjeeling Limited.

I will never understand the hate for Life Aquatic, nor will I understand the love for Royal Tenenbaums, but I can say all his movies are decent at the very least. I love the SHIT out of Fantastic Mr. Fox...moreso than most.

There are some great set-pieces in it, but I don't know, I can never really get invested in that movie. And I should want to, because it's the most Bill Murray, who's the most perfect actor for Anderson's stuff. But it just feels. . . distant or cold, where Tenenbaums is driven, I feel, by warmth. Royal's fuckups are all driven by joie de vivre and overwhelming love for the family that he doesn't know how to express. Whereas Zissou feels like he's sleepwalking.

Maybe that's really it- Hackman is really the most perfect actor for Anderson, while Bill is better suited as a support or "second lead" role like Rushmore, where the melancholy he does so well with Wes doesn't drag the film down.

Really liked Rushmore. Liked Bottle rockets. Loved Royal Tennebaums. Enjoyed Life Acqautic. But by Darjeeling Limited I really reacted very negatively to the Wes Anderson look and feel. Darjeeling Limited just seemed super self-indulgent and I kind of had enough of it.

SO bad so that on a Saturday night with nothing to watch, I decided to watch nothing rather than watch this film. Cast seems impressive but the trailer did nothing for me. weird.
