Wes Anderson’s films always have the feel of elaborately-staged dioramas, and The French Dispatch is his most sophisticated shoebox story yet. The film is set in a New Yorker-inspired literary magazine in small-town France in the 1960s. Has there ever been a more Wes Anderson-esque sentence than that? It’s a collection of four sketches portraying stories in The French Dispatch, an outpost of a Kansas paper set in the fictional village of Ennui-sur-Blasé. Nearly every actor from Anderson’s regular troupe is here. Endless new additions, too, most notably Jeffrey Wright and Dune’s Timotheé Chalamet, who is adorable as ever. If you come to The French Dispatch loving Anderson, there’s much to continue loving here.
