'Moonrise Kingdom' is another treat for Wes Anderson fans

lasvegasweekly.com
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Few directors’ films are as instantly identifiable as Wes Anderson’s, with their symmetrical framing, deadpan performances and obsessive attention to fussy detail. Generally speaking, you’re either a fan or you’re not—and it’s hard to imagine the former not surrendering to his latest, Moonrise Kingdom , which is set on a tiny fictional island off the coast of New England in 1965 but of course truly unfolds in Wesworld.

Movie Review: ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

  • Excerpt: I try to love Wes Anderson. Really. I do. Give me “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” any day, or “Rushmore;” even “The Royal Tenenbaums.” But his latest twee tableau shortchanges story and character development (oy vey – is the point arrested development again?). The retro comedy waves a banner of cleverness, where insight would be more welcome. The whole enterprise reminds me of the shrewd little rodent boxes made by Steve Carell’s character in “Dinner for Schmucks.

  • Conclusion: As funny, bittersweet and as distinct as you’d expect from Wes Anderson, a director who helps you know you are not alone. Terrific performances from sprogs to stars and a lovely sense of the sorrow and joy of growing up.

  • Excerpt: "Moonrise Kingdom" follows the sweet romance of two misunderstood kids, who find solace in one another after everyone else has given up on them. The narrow island setting is full of quirks, making use of a tour guide to describe some of its more famous tidbits, and adding a homely touch to the affair and adventure.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

  • Excerpt: Problematische familieverhoudingen, onmogelijke liefdes, existentiële leegtes; het zijn bekende thema’s in het oeuvre van regisseur Wes Anderson. De eigenzinnige Texaan maakt films waar iedereen een mening over heeft; either you love him or you hate him – een tussenweg is er niet. ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ (2012), een fabel over een kalverliefde tussen twee verloren zielen, is onmiskenbaar een Wes Anderson-film.

  • Excerpt: De ingrediënten van de films van Wes Andersons zijn bekend: getroebleerde families, humor op de rand van het treurige en zorgvuldig gestileerde fantasiewerelden. Moonrise Kingdom bewijst dat je daar steeds weer iets verfrissends mee kunt maken.

  • Excerpt: Ingen andre regissører skaper filmfortellinger som Wes Anderson. Han har en rik fantasi, som på eget vis kommer til liv i filmene hans. Den første kjærligheten blir satt på prøve i hans Moonrise Kingdom . En sjarmerende og søt film for deg som liker sjarmerende og søte ting. 12 år gammel. En fantastisk og forferdelig tid. Hovedpersonen Sam Shakusky (spilt av Jared Gilman ) er speider, men uten venner i troppen.

  • Excerpt: Vormgegeven als een toneelstuk voor kinderen, weet Moonrise Kingdom op charmante wijze een kinderlijke droom te positioneren in de realiteit van de jaren zestig. De film is afwisselend romantisch, lief, soms vreemd, melancholisch en grappig. Regisseur Wes Anderson weet met Moonrise Kindom de kijker te charmeren en vooral weer even weg te laten dromen naar onze jeugd.
