“Sparkplug Minuet” from The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), composed by Mark Mothersbaugh.
No explanations. Favorite movie.
“We’ve had a rough year, Dad.”
“Simply stated, Wes Anderson is the most original presence in American film comedy since Preston Sturges. He is as boundlessly confident as Sturges was in his heyday, and he has a similarly keen ear for gaudy dialogue; a gift for surprise and for topping one joke with a bigger one; a knack for rooting out archetypes hitherto untouched in movies; and a penchant for making films that feel like pageants, composed of a democratically diverse cross section of humanity.”
—Kent Jones, The Royal Tenenbaums: Faded Glories
The gorgeous denouement from Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums, (2001) composed by Mark Mothersbaugh.
