The French Dispatch (15)


The French Dispatch (15)

Friday 12th November 2021 - Thursday 18th November 2021

Dir. Wes Anderson, US, 2021, 108 mins. Cast. Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand.

Wes Anderson’s delightful, star-studded homage to journalism and literary magazines is a feast for the eyes and a whip-smart comic delight. The French Dispatch, a high-brow magazine based in the imagined Gallic town of Blasé-sur-Ennui, has reached its end. Its founder (Murray) has died, and his staff reflect nostalgically on the publication’s halcyon days, when the writers were as celebrated as the subjects they covered. Anderson is at the top of his game with this dazzling, breathlessly inventive and irrepressibly witty tribute to the New Yorker magazine and its writers. Along with his trademark shooting style – exquisitely-conceived symmetrical compositions – there’s deft use of aspect ratio and seamless monochrome-to-colour shifts. All in all, it’s an absolute treat.

PROGRAMME UPDATE: The 2.30pm screening on Wednesday 17 November will be socially distanced: capacity in the cinema has been reduced to 40 maximum and there will be empty seats left between groups.
