There are certain characteristics that distinguish a Wes Anderson movie. First we can point out the cast of the movies. We can almost see the same cast in every single movie that he makes. The Wilson brothers are the most that stand out, appearing in almost all of his movies. In the case both cases we see Luke Wilson, and even when Owen Wilson did not act in Rushmore, he was the executive producer.  In terms of characters both movies show childish male characters and “smart pants” characters. But the most important thing is that everything they do, it’s like a game or Anderson present it as a funny, not a big deal, thing. We also can see characters that at the end of the movie are not the same. They seem a bit more mature, with their issues partially resolved or in the process.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of a Wes Anderson movie is the use of a slow motion shot that starts as a song starts playing. In these shots it is easy see the effects of Anderson’s close attention to detail. When the slow motion sets in it is easy to pay attention to all the things going on onscreen, and to see that every little prop or extra has some sort of value to the movie.
