Wes Anderson short film CASTELLO CAVALCANTI

     It never gets old. Here is Wes Anderson's new short film Castello Cavalcanti. He teamed up with Prada for this little gem and has one of his regulars performing in it, Jason Schwartzman. Really enjoy the small Italian village set and small Italian cars. Love the irony and misguided aloofness of it all. Schwartzman is the best at delivering Anderson's dialogue at high level with dry, acute articulation. I also like Anderson working with a different DP, using Darius Khondji (Midnight in Paris & Seven) for this short. The stark contrast of lighting is a beautiful change from the amber shades of Anderson's usual DP Robert Yeoman, who is also great. Can never get enough Wes Anderson. Full of quarter turns and quick pans. Anderson is one of the most unique auteur's working in film today and a personal favorite of mine.
