Well written critisms of Wes Anderson

So, until recently I've disliked all the Wes Anderson movies I've seen. However, I just saw Moonrise Kingdom
and Grand Budapest Hotel
back to back and I won't lie, I did enjoy them a fair bit. But I'm having trouble thinking about them beyond the surface level, because while I do like those two movies there is something really off-putting about all Anderson films to me, and I love odd, quirky, confusing movies so one would think he movies would be right up my ally.
So, the crux of this question is: Is there, out there, good comprehensive critical analysis of Wes Anderson movies? I'm not looking for rants, but for thoughtful deconstruction.

I've read a little on some folk's thoughts on race within his films, and that seems to be part of it, but also seems to be only a part of the whole.
It is important to note, I don't have to agree with the analysis, I just want fodder for the hopper to think about.
