Film Trailers: BOTTLE ROCKET
Wednesday's film trailers honors Wes Anderson on his birthday. One of the directors, along with Quentin Tarantino, that really got me invested in film as more than a hobby, but as a passion and study. Anderson's films are often defined as "quirky" and that may be true, but they without a doubt hold the distinction of a true auteur. His films are aesthetically beautiful, artfully and meticulously framed, staged and detailed, and contain the brilliant Bill Murray in some capacity. Wes Anderson's films are uniquely funny with warmth and sometimes contain dark elements of the human experience, often depression and familial ups and downs. Many of these themes are present in most of his films but his first film, Bottle Rocket, is a crime caper that is full of misfits on-the-run from the law and hilarious situations of love and friendship. The film also introduced the world to the brothers Owen and Luke Wilson. One of my favorite films of all time and I hope everyone enjoys the trailer. Happy Birthday Wes.
