A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence [2015] : A static retrospect of life

The absence or scarcity of happiness or a lighter tone doesn’t take away the fact that in its bizzare & absurd vignettes , a chuckle is the most common response. Also, the occasional randomness of the film seem to be so picturesque that when Anderson’s busy portraying them on his canvas; making the foreground and background talk without words, they come off as essential parts and not just random gibberish. The film hence gives out the timeless essence that is not provoked by words but strong, often surreal, imagery.
