American screenwriter and director Wes Anderson just released is newest film The Grand Budapest Hotel, a movie that relies on his typically quirky aesthetic and another visual technique that runs through all of his work—symmetry. The video above, created by Vimeo user kogonada, reveals Anderson's heavy reliance on symmetry throughout his work by placing a dotted line smack down the center of scenes from his best known films (Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The Royal Tenenbaums). By splicing Anderson's movies, this simple line shows Anderson's precise and deliberate method, a studied technique that is easy to overlook.
