Before I dive into the review, there are two things I want to make clear. First, The French Dispatch is a hard movie to do Peetimes for, which makes it hard to write a fair review, since I couldn’t be fully invested in the experience. But I will try to do my best. Second, if you like Wes Anderson movies, you will like this one; if you have never been a fan, this movie still has all the things you don’t like before.
I’m a fan of Wes Anderson movies myself, not just because of the bizarre stories he likes to tell in a bizarre way, but the visual aspect of them. His movies usually offer such a beautiful and unique experience, The French Dispatch is no exception.
I like how the story is told with mini-stories from different journalists. We get to see different stories from different categories in a unified theme and background. I liked all of the mini-stories; each one of them can be studied and discussed. What made it hard for me was the French and the subtitles. Don’t get me wrong, I love it in the movie — I think it adds such a beautiful flow to it — I wish the whole movie could just be in French. Mainly because I love the sound of French. But it made doing Peetimes so much harder. I struggle between “should I write that down” and crap — I just missed that bit of subtitle.
I guess the best way to conclude how I feel about the movie is, given the chance, I would totally watch it again just to enjoy it.
About The Peetimes: If you know Wes Anderson’s style, you know this is a hard movie to do Peetimes for. I managed to find 2 Peetimes that I think are well-spaced. They are equally mediocre to me. 🙂
