The Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer And The Wes Anderson Collection Book!

As you can probably tell I'm a big fan of Wes Anderson, he is one of my favorite
directors of all time. I even got to see him do a live Q&A session following a screening of Fantastic Mr. Fox, after which I got his autograph and a picture taken with him.  I wish I could live in the world of some of his films, they aren't really real life, they are like some dream world where almost anything can happen.  He is a true Auteur and one of the most artistic and visionary filmmakers working today.  When you watch a Wes Anderson film, you know you are watching a Wes Anderson film. He has a specific style that is all his own.
Horrible photo of me, but likely the only one I'll ever get with Wes Anderson.

If you are a fan of his like I am, you'd be interested to hear that film critic, and Anderson fan Matt Zoller Seitz has recently published a book called "The Wes Anderson Collection," an in depth look at the films of Wes Anderson.

Check out a trailer for his book:
