Saturday Night Live doesn’t have a reputation for lampooning independent filmmakers too often, but they do love jumping onto a good meme and Wes Anderson parodies have definitely reached “meme” level. Leave it to the legendary sketch comedy show, though, to use their considerable resources to make the Wes Anderson parody to end all Wes Anderson parodies.
It’s called The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders and stars Edward Norton (himself a star of Moonrise Kingdom) as Owen Wilson (Anderson’s frequent co-star and co-writer) in a horror story that also “features” Anderson players like Adrien Brody, Alec Baldwin, Anjelica Huston, Jason Schwartzman and many others. Some even as themselves. Check it out below.
Here’s SNL’s Wes Anderson parody.
So much great Anderson love in that piece, from the camera moves to the framing, editing, and even some inside jokes like the “twins” who are really just Ari and Uzi Tenebaum. Fantastic stuff.
