Wes Anderson Madness

March 23, 2012

Hello all. Mark here.

1. NCAA March Madness is conquering the sports world.

2. Grantland’s Wire Smacketology tournament provided a predictable winner, tons of conversation and almost caused a riot of angry webizens.

3. Wes Anderson’s latest film Moonrise Kingdom is ready to be released on the world.

These three things influenced me to single out the best character in the Wes Anderson universe. I love Anderson films and I’ve always recommended them to anybody that will listen. Putting this list together was a fun trip down memory lane. I remembered how many uniquely awesome characters inhabit the Wes world.

I analyzed the films Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Limited and Fantastic Mr. Fox in an effort to find my favorite character (It will surprise you). I narrowed the field down to 32 personalities and I broke up the tournament into four brackets. The brackets are:

1. Cuss Spit

2. Portuguese Bowie

3. Wildcat

4. Watersports

The following are the initial brackets. Who do you think should win? Did I leave anybody out? Comment on the bracket and let me know your thoughts.
