11 Nov 2021. For our Friday night movie, we chose a film full of well known actors that looked absurd and funny – The French Dispatch. The clip looked pretty absurd at any rate 😉
The French Dispatch is a classic Wes Anderson movie (apparently, I’ve only seen one other one) about “The French Dispatch,” a newspaper based in France which circulates in Kansas, USA, bringing foreign culture, events, and perspective to a place that otherwise would have no exposure to them.
The core of the film was focused on three distinct short stories, which were featured in that very newspaper. A notable group of famous stars played roles big and small.
A small group of tíc members gathered at Cinecitta, the very cute and somewhat recently renovated boutique movie theater in Tilburg city center. If you haven’t been, we definitely recommend checking it out. We all agreed that the movie had its funny and memorable parts, but it was quite dense, especially with respect to dialogue, and may have been easier to process a bit earlier in the day. But it left enough to discuss, and we enjoyed some post-film chit-chat despite the late hour.
