The Royal Tenenbaums is arguably one of Wes Anderson's most esteemed movies, if not the best. The movie is rich in detail, and characters are so developed to sense, that you walk away from the movie feeling like you know everything about them. This may not be favorable, for film buffs who prefer deeper analysis, but this tangible narrative is the beauty of the film in a nutshell. The movie plays on the intellectual and accomplished, yet dysfunctional upper middle class, east coast family, in an extraordinary sense. Everything about this movie is done beautifully, and just when the viewer thinks they get the story, a brother-sister relationship is introduced, which allows for an ingenious engagement, from a directorial standpoint. The story also wraps up itself in the end, which promises satisfied and enriched praise from the audience.
