I found your article by searching "why do so many people have a hard time understanding wes anderson movies" I thought you were just in-educated in artistic film-making until I realized the article was written by a female.
I then immediately understood why you only like fantastic mr. fox. That one was basically for kids. And Hotel Chavalier was a short. Stereotypically girls and kids like films to be short, sweet, romantic and spoon-fed. You liked HOTEL CHAVALIER because it was a simple love story and you didn't have to actually THINK to understand. I bet you get really moved by music videos, and I mean that with love. In fact females are so much better at love it makes me sick.
I do know a few females who like real Wes Anderson movies and they are also sarcastic comedians by nature. As far as wishing Wes would change his style to give them more life? You have never been more wrong. So many love his films because they ARE beautiful talking photographs. You also have to love dark humor... If you do not think it is a funny premise that a group of Scouts go looking for a rogue Scout armed to the teeth with brutal weapons (just like kids pretend to do in real life) than go watch whatever reboot hollywood is crapping out next. His films are not perfect but they are filled with deep thought and emotion. Oh and they are truly beautiful to look at. Just like woman. Cheers!
