Wes Anderson has never made a bad movie. That said, his immediately-recognizable style may not be everyone's cup of tea, and he manages to cohere his vision with a narrative more effectively sometimes than others. With the release of Asteroid City on the horizon this summer, we figured now would be a great time to explore all 10 Wes Anderson movies, ranked from worst to best.

One of the fun features of Anderson's movies is his immense commitment to using an incredibly small pool of actors for almost all of his movies. Players like Bill Murray have appeared in every film of his, while over 25 actors have appeared in at least two of his flicks. To highlight this, we've included some of the stars of each movie to give an idea of how frequently he reuses his roster.
