Wes Anderson looks as twee as ever on the cover of WSJ magazine

Wes Anderson isn't usually the one in front of the camera lens. But on the March cover of WSJ magazine, Anderson looks as if he just stepped off the set of one of his own films.

In the WSJ profile, appropriately titled "The Life Aesthetic," Anderson describes his latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, as "a Lubitsch-esque type of thing and maybe a '30s type of Hitchcock movie." The article also discusses Anderson's love of nostalgia and his passion for travel — at the end of the interview, Anderson hints that he's interested in filming his next work in Japan.
