Wes Anderson is back with a colorful splash.
The French Dispatch is the latest colorful lighthearted masterpiece from auteur Wes Anderson. And like his previous work, the movie is replete with an A-list cast, eccentric humor, and elegance.

It’s a tribute to The New Yorker magazine and also spoofs it. Although the movie was delayed due to COVID-19, the pleasure of watching it was worth the wait. Here’s what Twitter has to say about it:
Many fans agree that this film is amazing.
The French Dispatch was an absolute masterpiece. I genuinely can’t think of anything that could’ve made it better.
THE FRENCH DISPATCH (2021). The common complaint is that Wes Anderson only makes precious, eccentric, emotionally-aloof little curiosity cabinets. My complaint is that more filmmakers aren’t making precious, eccentric, emotionally-aloof little curiosity cabinets. I adored it.

The French Dispatch is one of the most beautiful, invigorating, inspiring pieces of modern film artistry and I am unutterably dismayed because I know I can never create anything that will be even 1/10th as impactful as this film. Chapeau Wes Anderson.
@french_dispatch An absolute visual treat for the eyes. The perfect antidote to everyday life and set in 1960s France ???????? What’s not to love!
Of course, the stellar cast helped solidify the movie’s greatness.
Fans are thirsting for Timothée Chalamet.
His dedication to his art unveiled.

Really, really enjoyed THE FRENCH DISPATCH, and that poignant heart to heart scene between Jeffrey Wright’s Roebuck Wright and Stephen Park’s Lt. Nescaffier on being foreigners, is one of the most beautiful scenes I’ve seen all year.
It seems there are some who liked a particular segment of the movie the most.
I’m lukewarm on The French Dispatch, but “The Concrete Masterpiece” is Wes Anderson at his very, very best. This story about a murderous artist and his jailer muse has the spirit missing from the other vignettes, and I ate it right up. Worth a watch just for that story.

Don’t we wish there was a real French Dispatch?
Now I know why people love Wes Andserson. This film was so artistic and incredible. Now I’m romanticising everything I see while pining for a copy of the French Dispatch.
Forget that new James Bond film and prepare to see Léa Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright in a work of art which takes you on a flurry of adventure… The @french_dispatch does not disappoint!
