From what I’ve gathered about the “They Say I Say” document, Anthony Lane of the New Yorker is bringing in a sort of conversational type review. Lane is descriptive about Wes Anderson’s movie but he leaves the argument to be talked about. He allows space for others’ input if wanted. The second to last sentence really provides that the “they say” is unstated. Saying that “Moonrise Kingdom” may become some studied sort of nostalgia and private jokes, which should relate back to the thesis but a proper thesis is not necessarily provided. This movie review dives straight into the plot without much of a statement to begin with.
