Best Wes Anderson Films


The Top Ten

1 Moonrise Kingdom

An absolutely hilarious and interesting character study of wanting to be more impulsive and rebellious. A quirky treat for any Wes Anderson fan.

Favourite and most beautifully filmed rom-com by Wes Anderson of all time.

Not the usual Hollywood spin stuff. That's what makes it so enjoyable. Great film!

It was really cute and friendly. This should be crowned #1.

2 Rushmore

Max Fischer was a brilliantly conceived character. Directing, acting and soundtrack were dead-on and Bill Murray turns in his best performance to-date. This was Anderson at his best before he began to parody himself.

Rushmore may not have the camera symmetry and complete quirkness that other Anderson's movies would have in the future, but this is his most interesting story and Bill Murray's best role ever.

Amazing movie. I love Schwartzman and Murray. Soundtrack is genius. This is hard between this and Moonrise Kingdom, nut oh well!

3 The Grand Budapest Hotel

This film boasts a zany and incredibly fun storyline, fantastic visuals and an absolutely amazing cast of characters. This is Ralph Fiennes's best performance so far, in my opinion. Plainly put, this movie is just spectacular!

It's his newest feature and in my opinion his best so far!

4 The Royal Tenenbaums

The film is one of his most daring and clever films. The story is exciting and the characters who inhabit it are all interesting and three-dimensional. Anderson's style works perfectly with the story.

5 Fantastic Mr. Fox

This is obviously Andersons best with gorgeous stop motion the scenes play out perfectly

6 The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

One of my favorite films of all time. Quirky, clever, filled with fascinating characters and beautiful imagery... I love it to death. Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Willem Dafoe steal the screen whenever present, but every single actor in this star-studded cast puts forth an amazing performance regardless of their character's importance. - andrelebrun

7 The Darjeeling Limited

Brilliantly made and outrageously clever at times. The mini-arcs throughout the movie really add a unique sort of feel to the entire film. - andrelebrun

I think Jason Schwartzman's mustache in this should be enough of a reason to put this at number 1

8 Bottle Rocket
9 Hotel Chevalier
10 The Squid and the Whale
