THE DOORS - (you need meat) don’t go no further (by Ary Chengoy)
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Wes Anderson, Roman Coppola
I’m no fan of Wes Anderson but this was engaging and kind of sweet. Reminded me of Son of Rambow really but i think I’m alone in that. It does have the same feel good factor and luckily enough it doesn’t play up a sound track to influence your emotions like most crap that is shown. It is questionable that IMDB wanted to call 2 twelve year old’s ‘young lover’ in its synopsis. That isn’t Anderson’s fault; i guess he wanted to make a quirky film for adolescents who want more than CGI kung fu or whatever. He does have the qualities of an auteur in his work (or the few I’ve seen) with the framing of the shoots and how he gets the actors to perform. He looks to be greatly influenced by french new wave and eastern European cinema.

I found it disappointing, except for this bit.
