The French Dispatch Review – The Movie is screenplay and directed by one and only Wes Anderson and cast to many know celebrities like Bill Murray, which makes a reason to watch this movie. A love letter to journalists, set in an American newspaper outpost in a fictional French city of the 20th century. The French Dispatch is an Anthology, and it brings to life a selection of stories published by “The French Dispatch Magazine.” This story is inspired by The NewYorker, read by Anderson as a teenager in his past.
The French Dispatch Review
France and America are merged in the French Dispatch. Neither is Anderson’s home, but the latter is where one can easily imagine Anderson wishing to be from (judging from his early works that sprang from a French New Wave aesthetic). As the story opens, the Kansas Evening Sun, the French Dispatch of the Liberty, and Arthur Howitzer Jr. (Bill Murray) advertise their obituaries for 1975.
A man of few words, Howitzer Jr. was inspired by the New Yorker founder Harold Ross. The artist depicts him with reverence and solemn respect for an art that is dying. The artist’s paper is dedicated to introducing French culture to Kansas. You can imagine Anderson, a young Anderson, looking out of this kind of global window.
The French Dispatch Watch Full Movies
A brief prologue takes us on a tour of the funky but macabre nooks of Ennui-sur-Blase with travel writer Herbsaint Sazerac (Owen Wilson). Although it opens on a tongue-in-cheek note, the film does not feel nihilistic or emotionally distant despite the name “tedium” and the river “indifference.” The story is based on a New Yorker article written by Joseph Mitchell about New York’s grimier parts. As framed by and written by Anderson, the touching, distinctly human reality Mitchell presented to the screen seems to come across as a flawed perspective (and sometimes critique).
There are two important ways in which this story sets the scene for what follows. In the first instance, Bill Murray’s character Howitzer Junior provides a contrast. The result is to rein in the self-conscious, fussy cynicism Anderson attributes to Sazerac.

Color is the second aspect. A split-screen comparison contrasts Ennui’s black-and-white images with current color photos in Sazerac’s city tour, which is an adaptation of an essay he wrote. Visually, the film is straightforward and easily recognizable. A color frame precedes each black-and-white flashback before each section of the story is told.
The rule does not apply to all cases. The color surrounding the screen changes briefly for each flashback. These are usually used when characters see a piece of unique art or something alluring as if those fleeting sensations and moments from the past have lingered with them in the present. It’s an art as memory, a concept the film ultimately embodies.
