Has writer/director Wes Anderson — the celebrated king of cinematic quirk — gone too quirky? Is he becoming a parody of himself?
In this episode of The Parallax Podcast, hosts Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy discuss Anderson’s latest, Moonrise Kingdom. They grapple with French director Leos Carax’s art-on-steroids romp Holy Motors and cover off on two new DVD releases: Rampart, starring Woody Harrelson as a corrupt cop, and writer/director Ti West’s haunted hotel flick The Innkeepers.
Plucking another weird title from his obscure collection, cult film guru Zak Hepburn joins the podcast couch to reminisce on the 1978 tele movie Kiss Meets the Park, featuring a robotic Gene Simmons.
