In March and April 2009, Moving Image Source published a five-part series by Matt Zoller Seitz on Wes Anderson's style and influences. On the occasion of the retrospective "Wes Anderson's Worlds" at the Museum of the Moving Image (May 18-27, 2012) and his new film, Moonrise Kingdom, which will be screened at the Museum on May 22 as a members-only preview, we are reposting the entire series. All five video essays can be viewed below. Transcripts are available with the original postings (Pts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
