I am watching this movie as I write and it is so great... the details behind the making of this movie are even more awesome, so awesome that they made a book all about it. Wes Anderson (the director) uses stop-motion technique, meaning that the entire movie is a stream of photos taken to create motion. Kind of like when we used to make flip books in grade school of a person jumping into a swimming pool. Very cool.
