Not very eloquently but he did answer a question about it in his Reddit AMA, as well as in the Q&A after Inherent Vice at the NYFF, both of which amount to the same thing.

Well, the first time we shot spherical was on the Master...it seemed like a good fit, evoking the old 50s films like Vertigo and North By Northwest...large format films but in a boxy frame....it was a nice change from the earlier films....I wanna shoot scope again though...maybe next time...

Had trouble thinking of its beginning as anything other than a nod at the cold open from the second episode of Fleabag. With a dash of "see something, say something."

I never thought I'd see Thom Yorke of all people channel the energy of Barry Egan or even Jacques Tati, but Anima was just great stuff, up there with your Welcome Homes as one of the best musical shorts of the past few years, and a thousand times more expressive than any non-Damien-Chazelle directed musical in who-knows-how-long. I never thought of Anderson as a director who would be particularly attuned to the needs of a musical, and now I kinda want Anderson to be working on a feature-length one next. I think Tiffany Haddish can sing, is all I'm saying. Shame on the Academy if they forget about this by next March.

I don't get the music video. Danielle and the guy playing the saxophone make eyes at one another in passing, then, when they are finally confronted with one another, Danielle lays herself bare to him sayingClarence wrote: ↑Wed Jul 31, 2019 3:16 pmNew PTA-directed music video for Haim’s “Summer Girl”.
Peer around the corner at you
From over my shoulder, I need you
I need you to understand
These are the earthquake drills that we ran
Under the freeway overpasses
The tears behind your dark sunglasses
The fears inside your heart as deep as gashes
Walk beside me, not behind me
Feel my unconditional love
but he doesn't seem to change. At the end of the video, they are walking away from another in opposite directions, Danielle is bare, both physically and metaphorically, and he's just tooting his own horn. The song seems like a love song but the video is kind of anti-love.

She hasn't exactly chosen the most high profile projects to hitch her wagon to (though it's probably naive to assume she had a whole bunch of choices just because) - The Girl in the Spider's Web bombed, the Das Boot TV series isn't exactly setting Hulu on fire, and Bergman Island and Harry Haft will be modest arthouse hits at maximum. I'm sure it's all fulfilling work, but if she was going to become a huge star, the window may have already closed.
