“Centered” Demonstrates Wes Anderson’s Love for Symmetry In His Films. Which Is So Nerdy.
If you’re a fan of Wes Anderson‘s films, you’ve probably already picked up on certain things. Lots of dry humor. A sense of loss. Always the same cast of great actors. And symmetry? The guy simply cannot get enough of centered shots. These shots are used for various purposes — sometimes providing a quiet comic angle in certain scenes, but more often than not lending a certain sense of balance that lingers throughout the whole film — or films, as it were.
Check out this video that shows the obsessive amount of symmetry Anderson incorporates into his compositions.
