The Story Behind Wes Anderson's ROYAL TENENBAUMS and LIFE AQUATIC

Here are two more Wes Anderson documentaries/video essays that were created to give us a behind the scenes look at how The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. These are the third and fourth chapters in a series that was adapted from the a book written by Matt Zoller Seitz, called The Wes Anderson Collection

Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish—and thoroughly original.

The author teamed up with editor Steven Santos to bring his book to life. There's a lot of interesting stuff included in these videos, and they are definitely worth watching. To watch the first two chapters of the video series, click here.

Out of these two films, which was your favorite? I'd have to go with Life Aquatic, which is funny because I didn't really care for it the first time I watched it. But the more I watched, the more it came to life. Now it's one of my favorites.
