Honestly, my main problem is not his technique or his style. It's the horde of followers he has earned himself with that style, which isn't his fault tbh.
If a director has a vision and wants to make movies his/her way, I'm all for it. I think being in a lower-level cinema class just gave me an overdose of Wes FANderson's (i made that up, pretty clever) and I was already annoyed with him before but now I'm on a divine mission to rebel against him or something.
Yea, i don't like the guy's movies, but I also completely agree with you when you say his style is his substance. And Wes knows it too, that's why he does it, and it's a cool exercise in mise-en-scène and set control.
Thanks for your comment! It's always nice to hear fans of Anderson explain their side to me
