Opinion: Wes Anderson/DVD covers.

The covers of Wes' six feature-length films released to date: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. A really interesting way to see the evolution of his style and artistic license within films. Despite the fact it is not shown on the two DVD covers of Bottle Rocket and Rushmore, however, Futura has always remained a constant within the films (at very least). Interesting representation of characters and styles used on the front too- Rushmore and FMF, for instance, having the same ~revolutionary~/propaganda style feel about them, as well as the number of characters a recurring feature- either a large group (five+) or three on the cover. A true auteur.
