Accidental Wes Anderson

Saturday August 31, 2019 Written by Garry

The places that Wes Anderson shoots in his movies can feel so immaculately well-designed (read: twee) that they often bear little resemblance to the real world. It’s easy to forget, though, just how much of the real world makes it into his films: the Grand Budapest Hotel was a real building, after all, and Steve Zissou's ship wasn't that much crazier than Jacques Cousteau's.

That's where the Reddit page Accidental Wes Anderson comes in. A collection of real-world locations that look like they're straight out of an Anderson classic, it's a reminder that, sometimes, the famous auteur's cinematic world exists within our own.
