Second-year Brittain Fellow Rachel Dean-Ruzicka recently published an article, “Themes of Privilege and Whiteness in the Films of Wes Anderson,” in The Quarterly Review of Film and Video 30.1 (2013): 25-40. The article discusses Anderson’s first five films: BOTTLE ROCKET (1996), RUSHMORE (1998), THE ROYAL TENENBUAMS (2001), LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU (2004), and DARJEELING LIMITED (2007). The claim of the article is that Anderson’s films largely use non-white characters to reinforce the invisible normalcy of whiteness.
