In Moonrise Kingdom, the scene after the "chapel" looks very, very familiar - what is it a parody of?

Part of the scene is seen in the trailer, from 1:43 to 1:46.

    can you be more specific about what occurs in the scene?

  • I liked the film rather more than some of Mr. Anderson's other work, but there is a degree to which every scene in one of Wes' films looks like every other scene in a Wes Anderson film. The man simply has a distinctive visual style. Commented Aug 15, 2012 at 0:08
  • @ShaneFinneran Ah, found it in the trailer, added a link and the time. I hope that is clear enough.

To me, that scene has similar camera angle and swagger as the opening-credits shots in Reservoir Dogs when the entire group of robbers are walking together -- beginning at 00:27 in this clip
