CM – The first clip of « French Dispatch » pairs Frances McDormand with a very naked Timothée Chalamet


If you’re looking to release the first clip from Wes Anderson’s « The French Dispatch, » the best way to make a splash is to have Timothée Chalamet in it naked. Smart Move, Searchlight Pictures. New footage from Anderson’s latest film was debuted when Chalamet worked with three-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand. The black and white clip comes from one of the three anthology stories packaged in Anderson’s “French Dispatch”.

In this particular “French Dispatch” story, McDormand plays the sober journalist Lucinda Krementz and Chalamet plays the quirky student activist Zeffirelli . Lucinda and Zeffirelli’s relationship takes an unexpected turn when the journalist describes the activist’s exploits. In his B-review of “The French Dispatch” from Cannes, IndieWire chief critic Eric Kohn singled out this section of the film as one of the most memorable.

“It’s the McDormand / Chalamet segment that allows Anderson to be much bigger To bring out ambitions as he traces the history of student revolutionaries in smoky bars with such overt early Godard overtones that it is a wonder he makes no reference to the children of Marx and Coca-Cola, ”Kohn writes. « However, he gives us Chalamets Zeferelli in a bizarre love triangle with an older woman and the radical French motorcyclist (Lyna Khoudri), whose ideology does not quite match his. »

Kohn continues: “The sight of the couple on their bikes racing up a black precipice is one of the most lyrical, even haunting images in Anderson’s repertoire; it awakens the constant feeling of mystery and traveling to exotic destinations, both real and imaginary, which are often the focus of his work. « 

Elsewhere in his review, Kohn writes about the film: » It’s hard To imagine another living filmmaker with a style as instantly recognizable as Wes Anderson, an accomplishment that works against him no matter how far he goes. ‘The French Dispatch’ doubles it with a free-running triptych of stories that add to its appeal by amplifying it. « 

 » The French Dispatch « opens in theaters on October 22nd by Searchlight Pictures. The date happens to be the same day Warner Bros. opened another Chalamet vehicle called the Dune. Check out the first clip of Anderson’s latest below.
