As Wes Anderson graces us with his latest monster-ensemble-cast comedy, Asteroid City, it seems like a sensible idea to not only celebrate his own work, but also explore the cinema that inspired and influenced his films, now spanning almost three decades. So this summer KINO is proud to present eight films the Texan maverick openly marveled at or paid homage to, during his illustrious career. French New Wave, American indie, Mediterranean satire, stylized docu-drama and even some ultra-violence… It’s going to be a glorious movie summer as we ask ourselves: What Would Wes Watch? The answers might delight you. We’re screening the Complete Filmography of Wes Anderson as well again this summer, be sure to check those out as well!
