    the most wes anderson film so far. every picture is perfect and beautifu. the story is mostly empty, just there for the pretty pictures' sake.

    road movie is an appealing genre to me, so that's a plus. then the frank dialogue is another. there's something familiar to it, it feels a bit finnish. in a good way. and the rough black & white visuals are a perfect match for the old, sleepy towns of the film.

    a little off topic, but i want angela mcewan to tuck me in and tell me everything's going to be alright.

    polished looks, story picks up pace towards the end. the main character has supernatural hearing, which handled admirably in sound design. so final judgement: a very very pretty film overall.
