    Now and Then: Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott, Two Master Stylists Whose Best Work Is Past

    Let me begin by clarifying my headline. I am not saying that Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott, two master stylists with new movies in theaters, will not someday surpass their best films; that kind of prediction is impossible and counterproductive.
