Wes Anderson - Centered
Created by Kogonada, a South Korean filmmaker and regular contributor to Sight & Sound, Centered is just another of his projects centered around dissecting the signature cinematographical nuances of iconic directors. Back in 2012 he brought us a similarly themed analysis of Stanley Kubrick's usage of one point perspective, but this year he takes a look at Wes Anderson's usage of meticulous center framing (Done in collaboration with Robert Yeoman). There's a real love of symmetry present here, and I've always had the feeling that Anderson goes through some real painstaking effort to stage the characters in each shot as if they were pawns on a chess board.
