Moonrise Kingdom

I am straight up dying to see Wes Anderson’s new movie, but Rochester was not included in the “limited release,” gosh darn it. Well, soon enough. I recently read an interview with Wes, and it completely makes sense that he used to want to be an architect, based on the worlds he creates in his films…

Dazed & Confused: In the film, Sam asks Suzy what she wants to be when she grows up. As a kid, what did you want to become?
Wes Anderson: I wanted to be an architect. I don’t even know where I got that idea from. I think I was told ‘you should be an architect’ somewhere early on, and I just latched onto it. My idea of being an architect was envisioning variations of what my room could be, split-level secret chambers, transportation in and out, that sort of stuff. I guess that’s why I enjoy getting to build these fantasy locations.
