Supercut: The Genteel Hostility of Cursing in Wes Anderson Flicks

Wes Anderson is a filmmaker known for many things, from his elaborate sets to his perfectly framed shots to his very specific tonal quirks, but one thing he doesn’t get much credit for is how he uses profanity in his films. This supercut from The A to Z Review sheds light on Anderson’s particular F-bomb artistry, which is both subtle and hilarious. If Quentin Tarantino is the director who paints the walls red with swear words, Anderson is the director who adds accents around the edges, to great effect in everything from The Fantastic Mr. Fox (where the only swear used is “cuss,” because it’s a kids movie) to The Grand Budapest Hotel.
