Wes Anderson is now seen as one of America’s greatest and most stylistic filmmakers. With movies like The Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Darjeeling Limited, Anderson has solidified his place among the best and brightest of contemporary filmmakers. Anderson’s early movies, the films that rocketed him to stardom, are often written about separately and in contrast to his later films. In Fucking Innocent: The Early Films of Wes Anderson, John Andrew Fredrick’s criticism looks at Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums in this fun and sharp critique.
