I went and saw the new Wes Anderson film. It's been getting good reviews. Personally, I was disappointed. Especially after Fantastic Mr Fox and Moonrise Kingdom. It's another one of his films, like The Darjeeling Limited, where I just don't feel a connection to the story. Or the characters. There never seemed to be a true, emotional moment anywhere. It feels flat. And for the first time I actually found his style to be a bit grating.
I've begun five different stories. In the end there should be eleven or twelve, between six and 40 pages, for a book of around 200 pages. I'm working on 72 pages, of which there are
33 rough pencils
26 half finished
12 almost finished
1 finished, woo-hoo!
