VERDICT – 5/5

PROS –
1) A very peculiar love-triangle with hilarious consequences.
2) Jason Schwartzman as Max Fischer. The entire character of Max is intriguing. School’s most extracurricularly active and least academic student.
3) Wes Anderson movies are known for three things. Deadpan comedy, symmetrical compositions in cinematography, and the soundtrack from the 60s & 70s. This movie excelled in all 3 departments.

 

CONS –
N/A

“I am sick of these guys’ rap songs. They say ‘Girl, drop it like it’s hot’, ‘Shake it’. I want to make a rap song that says ‘Boy, brush your teeth, give me your jacket, I’m fucking freezing.”
