Reply to "MOVIES: What are you watching?"

Saw "The French Dispatch" yesterday.  Aside from some of the short scenes (more like paintings than film), shots of a cool village in France, and some performances, hated it.  No stories to speak of, at least none that we could follow, images flashing by before it was possible to get a good look at them, silly and pretentious in the extreme.  Animation at one point for no apparent reason.  Not sure what Wes Anderson was going for here but for us, he failed miserably.  Self-indulgent.  We loved Grand Budapest Hotel and Darjeeling Limited so we were quite disappointed by this one.

For those who want to check it out I strongly suggest watching it at home so that you can pause and drink in some of the scenes, which often included multiple characters and images for just a second or two before something else happened.
