      I'm not seeing it. I might just be distracted by how incredibly Wes Anderson it is. The picturesque pastels, the doll house aesthetics and period set design, the title cards and their fonts, the narrator, just the way the shots are framed all screams Wes Anderson to me. This is possibly the most Wes Anderson thing I've ever seen.

        It could just be the swapping to black & white throughout, this spinning table shot, and music that triggered the vibe for me. The music at the 1:05 mark especially, when it switched to an almost Ennio Morricone/spaghetti western sounding piece, which Tarrantino is quite fond of using...

        To me Wes Anderson movies are the perfect escape. You know precisely what your getting: the narrative is usually very formulaic, sets and costumes that are pleasing to the eye, and while sometimes dealing with heavy themes they still manage to come out feeling "light". I almost feel like it's an adult version of a picture book. I'm excited to, for only 2 hours, place my brain in a box, forget the current political and environmental landscape, and just be entertained.
