Filmmaker Wes Anderson has, over the years, infused his features with a very distinct style, one that not only sets him apart from other directors in the medium, but also makes his works instantly recognisable. Anderson’s distinctiveness also extends to the way he goes about shooting action scenes, which often pop up in his features, be they fights between siblings, as in The Darjeeling Limited, or full-scale shootouts between multiple people, such as in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Now Vimeo user Dávid Velenczei has made a supercut examining the myriad ways in which Anderson portrays different violent encounters, from the preparation to the actual action to the aftermath. The video, titled “Wes Anderson’s Violence”, can be seen below, with the following message attached.
I made this montage from the movies of Wes Anderson. The movies are: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel
