Want To Feel Like You’re In A Wes Anderson Film? Visit These 18 Real-Life Places.

Wes Anderson may have only directed 8 full-length films, but he’s already carved out a niche for himself as a celebrated auteur, a filmmaker with a distinctly recognizable style. With films like The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson has established a signature aesthetic. This aesthetic is marked by bold colors, symmetry, and a flare for all things retro and whimsical; simply put, Wes Anderson films just look like Wes Anderson. A subreddit called “Accidental Wes Anderson” was started for redditors to share real-life places that look like they belong in a Wes Anderson film. Now you can visit them yourself!
