Wes Anderson's World of Eyewear
Director Wes Anderson creates detailed worlds for his characters to inhabit, and it hasn't escaped me that eyewear plays a big role in his movies. In Darjeeling Limited for instance, where three estranged brothers take a rail trip across India to bond on the anniversary of their father's death, one brother notices near the start of the film that one of his other brothers is wearing their father's prescription glasses, despite the fact that they give him headaches.
What better way to celebrate Wes Anderson's upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel than to recap on his amazing costume design throughout his career?
