Anderson’s style is one of the best arguments against 3-D (not that he’s above it): It’s proof of how much of a gut punch smart, resourceful filmmaking can deliver without it. The Final Chapter, for all the goofiness of the franchise’s ongoing premise, is full of original, distinctly cinematic pleasures. That’s more than I can say for a lot of movies—but especially the ostensibly “better” ones, and most especially the ones so many of us pay to see.
