The Living Room Bijou: “The French Dispatch” and the “Anderson Touch.”

(Fandango Pictures)

Even after a second viewing, The French Dispatch is a hard movie to describe. Certainly, it’s a portmanteau film, a collection of vignettes. It’s also a comedy. About a magazine.

Well, okay, what else? One definite thing you can say about this most bright and cheerful comedy: It’s a Wes Anderson film.
