Wow, Dahl’s studio…er… “writing shed,” was a mess!

Yes, yes, how pretty and quaint.

But... behold!

Cue sinister music as the picture frames fall sideways on the wall....

And, how nice, a green astroturf-type surface to work on... or play a tiny game of golf?

Below is a short video of Wes Anderson popping in for a visit to Dahl’s home and "shed."

I loved the concept of the movie and the stop-motion was great (more people should be doing it - I'm sick of computer stuff!). The way the characters looked was great. But it fell short for me. The film dragged on too long and I got bored. There also seemed to be something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on—a pulse to the thing. I wanted more to grab onto. It’s too bad because it had a lot of promise. None the less, the little visit above is fun.
