This flew in a little under the radar. If you have been anticipating the return of Wes Anderson with his 10th film The French Dispatch, the wait is almost over as it will be in cinemas from this Friday, 22 October. It is sure to be gorgeous, charming, quirky, very entertaining and everything that cinema seemingly no longer wants to be.

If you are in or near London, much like the 2018 Isle of Dogs pop up exhibition, you can visit sets and much more from the film at the WES ANDERSON: THE FRENCH DISPATCH Exhibition right now at 180 The Strand.

It looks like the The French Dispatch Exhibition will be an immersive experience where you can view sets, props, costumes and art from the film. Very much the same way you could experience Isle of Dogs at the pop up exhibition Wes Anderson created in 2018 at the same venue. The video below was shot on my phone and edited on my phone on the way home from the exhibition.

The French Dispatch Exhibition

A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper.

On the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., (Bill Murray) the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blase, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.
