Wes Anderson

A World Explorer

Jun 04, 2012

While asserting that each one of his seven films has a unique fingerprint, writer/director Wes Anderson likes to entertain the thought that, in some small way, all the fictional creations he’s brought to life over his eighteen year career might somehow be interconnected. “I always thought that the characters from any movie that I’ve done could enter into another movie that I’ve done,” he says, pondering the idea that in some alternate universe might exist where Rushmore’s precocious high school student Max Fischer might have penned The Life Aquatic, or The Royal Tenenbaums’ morose playwright Margot could have found love on The Darjeeling Limited. “There’s sort of a tone of voice about these characters, they might fit together…There’s sort of a single universe, even though each of these movies, my goal is to make them each have their own kind of world. I have a feeling they’re connected together just by the limitations of my own imagination.” More
