Wes Anderson’s films always have the feel of elaborately-staged dioramas, and The French Dispatch is his most sophisticated shoebox story yet. Every time he expands his scope, he drifts a little further from actual feelings. 1998’s Rushmore is still his masterpiece. Even in The Royal Tenenbaums, you can feel his attention starting to scatter.
