Your data clearly shows that the popularity of Anderson's films is in steep decline, and for good reason. I found "The Master" to be a worthwhile view, but tedious and a noticeable step down from TWBB. Since then he has made two major films that I have no desire to see a second time. They weren't even good enough for me to give the benefit of doubt for a reappraisal. I'm hoping he'll make a comeback. The repeated failures of true film auteurs like Anderson just inspires Hollywood to pump out a higher percentage of mindless garbage.
I stopped watching Inherent Vice halfway through. Him and the Coen Bros. have gone off the rails.
I completely agree BigJack. Inherent Vice was insufferably pretentious, empty, and dull. The recent Coen Brothers Netflix production looks like a regurgitated amalgamation of their previous films. The last film of theirs I considered worthy of their undeniable talent was 9 years ago (A Serious Man).
Yes, A Serious Man, for whatever reason, worked for me.

The running F-Troop gag is pretty funny.
