As I explored in detail a couple weeks ago in my Slate slideshow, Wes Anderson has certain tics that he returns to again and again. One of the director’s most striking signatures is his frequent use of overhead shots, often of books, busy desk tops, and hands.

Of course, the real hand on display is Anderson’s.
