The French Dispatch

Wes Anderson’s new film ‘The French Dispatch’ is about the name given French magazine whose owner Arthur Howitzer Jr. recently died. Following his last will, one last farewell issue is supposed to be published, containing three articles from past editions and an obituary. These three short films within ‘The French Dispatch’ are, as usual from director Wes Anderson, very artsy staged and definitely worth watching. On the other hand, this style of Wes Anderson is not everyone’s thing which is why there’s not much more to talk about ‘The French Dispatch’. You are either a big fan or you are not. For Fans, this film may be one of Wes Andersons best pictures. The cast is as always outstanding and alone worth watching his films.
