Everything Wes Anderson has ever done has been leading to this. It's the most precise, mannered and art-directed movie that's come along in quite some time, so if that in-camera preciousness irks you, this will make your head explode. If you are a fan (and I am, though I've parted with Anderson in the past) this is a gooey, syrupy delight from the first frame until the last. 'Moonrise Kingdom' proves that you can be playful and fantastic while expressing deep sentiment at the same time. It's worthy of getting the title of Best Movie of 2012 (so far).
