    "Can you tell Mr. Henry I said that?" "I don't think we'll be seeing him anymore. He robbed Bob's house." "Really?..... I almost robbed it myself" the look Bob gives Dignan after this line in gold. I had only seen this onceyears ago & on the rewatch, I think this might be the best written of Wes' films, it's so zany, loose & quietly earnest, with a cast of characters whose traits are so detailed that we never know where they're going…

    Light on plot, heavy on characters. The characters were developed and likable. I usually don't love Owen Wilson, but he was amazing in this--his first film. Wes Anderson's signature style was definitely present in the close shots and color composition, but, as his first film, the style was less defining of the movie than it is in most of his. There are absolutely beautiful shots and compositions. The music fit perfectly!

    Lower your expectations and I think you'll find a good handful of things to enjoy here. I found it laugh-out-loud funny, especially during the climactic final "heist" sequence, and it's rough, but in a kind of refreshing way if you're used to Wes' other pieces which are so tightly calculated and over the top stylistically. Worth a visit.

    I needed a pick-me-up on an otherwise thoroughly awful birthday, so diving into Wes Anderson's debut for the first time in a long time was a nice pick-me-up until indigestion kept me awake the whole night after. Not the film's fault, of course, as it's still a rather unique film in his output that has his signature while not being anything much like what came after, no doubt as a result of having to make use of real world locations…

    On my second watch, two things changed for me. The roughness of the filmmaking stood out more. When I watched this for the first time, the freshness and originality seemed to mask over the at times awkward use of music as backbone for scenes, and the washed out look of some of the colors in the shots. Secondly, the use of criminality as humor didn't quite work as well as before. It still worked, and was fine, but it's harder…

    It was sort of hard to follow along. There was a plot, but nothing so big that the movie was about just that. In a way that's a good thing, just a story about a couple of guys doing shit. Simple and juvenile, yet entertaining, because of the great directing by my hero Wes Anderson. There were some good parts of dialogue, but overall the writing was average. The best thing to come out of this movie is that we…

    BOTTLE ROCKET succeeds as probably Wes Anderson's only pure comedy--but at the expense of a richness of character and emotional punch that we've come to expect in his other films. His distinct visual style, while still present, remains fairly subdued and serves as a mark of a filmmaker early in his career with a vision.

    Watched it today (watched the short w/ dad before leaving for germany) Although it was better than the short, i didn't feel it was all that great - why does scorcese love it? Not bad, but felt bad for 3rd wheeling, which made me feel not great about the romance. over all, I guess maybe I don't really get it? but not in an ncfom kind of way.

    A witty, clever, comedy of errors.


    Also, my first Wes Anderson film.
