MMM - Wanderson's Symmetry ...

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Like you designers, film directors have a style for which they are known: think Kubrick’s one-point perspective corridors, Tarantino’s gore, Allen’s self-deprecation and Hitchcock’s cameos, these become their cinéma objet d'art. 

Known for his distinctive visual and narrative film style, Wes Anderson carries a further trait in his filmmaking: symmetry.  Without exception, all of his films use symmetry to frame objects and place importance on subject.

A fun little enterprise called Kogonada picked up on this and compiled the below mosaic-video of scenes from Anderson films that use the technique– adding to their collection of cut+paste movies exposing trend in cinema.

The music from Kogonada's film is The New Lobby Boy by Alexandre Desplat, taken from Anderson’s latest film The Grand Budapest Hotel (and while we’re here note the symmetrical album cover for the soundtrack!).
