When its not being admired by twee hipsters at arthouse cinemas, Wes Anderson’s artistic vision is being spoofed by everyone from SNL to intrepid YouTubers who imagined what an Anderson-directed porno might look like.
But forget those parodies. What would it look like if the legendary director’s aesthetic were applied to one of the big-budget superhero movies Hollywood loves to churn out? That’s the question filmmaker Patrick H. Willems sought to answer in his latest short, “What if Wes Anderson directed X-Men?”
The result is actually pretty pleasing. Willems manages to meld all your favorite mutants with all the classic Anderson tropes and throw in a few jokes as well. The whole thing actually makes us wish that Rushmore had focused on a group of wayward young mutants instead of perky young kids at a prep school.
