Forrest Gump, as Directed by Wes Anderson

April 23, 2014 | Andy Cush

A Chocolate Box Kind of Life does a decent job imagining what the opening credits of Forrest Gump‘s opening credits might look like if it was directed by Wes Anderson, our generation’s most easily parodied filmmaker. The iconic typeface Futura abounds, of course — even though Anderson himself has moved on to Archer — and all the pretty vintage-looking props are tidily arranged in the center of the frame. If I can nitpick, however, I can’t imagine Anderson ever letting his titles interacting with the onscreen action like that.
