Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom premieres today at the Cannes Film Festival, and Randall Poster — Wes’ music supervisor (and our contributing music editor) — will be there with him. “Doing the music for Wes’s films is always an adventure and these projects have taken me all over the world,” Randall says. “What distinguishes the soundtracks is how indelible the music is from the storytelling. No one uses music better than Wes.” We hope Wes brings home the Palme d’Or. Here, Randall’s favorite songs from Wes’s movies — listen to them now on Spotify.
