Moonrise Kingdom

The movie “Moonrise Kingdom” had enough of the ingredients of legendary cinema for us to recognize that it comes close.

But it isn’t going to be remembered or as important as: “The 400 Blows”, “The Bicycle Thief”, “Cinema Paradiso”, “Fanny and Alexander”.

It feels like a Robert Altman movie for kids. Except it is not for kids. I miss Robert Altman.

What is “Moonrise Kingdom” lacking? Or what should it lack?

Also, can it win an Oscar?

  1. It seems to mix up two elements: Light humor and a serious subject. What message is it sending to kids, couched in humor, I wonder?
