    Y aquí es donde el señor Anderson empieza a forjar su estilo; con una fotografía a tonos pasteles como perfeccionaría en un futuro y con un par de personajes en situaciones irreverentes en una historia, que si bien se maneja como comedia, no tiene ese carisma o chispa que sus posteriores trabajos.

    Una ópera prima bastante comedida para un director hoy en día alabado.

    Even back than Anderson's works consisted of that distinctive combination of quiet beauty, odd comedy and innocent romanticizing of the most random, absurd things.
    The more stuff I watch this guy made, the more I believe in the assertion that his movies actually form their own unique genre which simply is not classifiable.

    Resevoir Dogs directed by Wes Anderson. Also features a cameo of Martin Scorses style with a rollicking Rolling Stones playing during an integral scene. However feels very un-Wes Anderson like excluding the use of red and side shots of everything.

    Since it's my birthday I wanted to watch a few of my favorites, Bottle Rocket is easily my favorite Wes Anderson film, and one of my favorite comedies.
    I don't have much to say that hasn't been said already.

    I'm going to be watching The Double Life of Veronique next.

    Every other WA movie has grown on me with every rewatch, and I hope that's the case with this, because I liked it, but I wasn't nearly as immersed in it as I would be in his other universes he creates. Pre-Schwartzman Anderson is foreign to me.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What I expected from Wes Anderson's debut feature, having seen all of his other work and become a fan of his over the years, was something a bit less methodical and more fresh. The first thing that people think about when they see his name is of course his distinct style. This is something that is noticeable to even the casual moviegoer, even if they don't have the vocabulary to exactly describe or express it. And you see little hints…

    Drags at some points but a really funny, offbeat Anderson flick.

    Got the criterion edition of this - and watched all of the extras. Really magnificent film, very funny, very neat watching a potent, nascent team create their career.

    Very interesting and quirky film. Cool to see the aspects of Anderson's style at the beginning.

    Charming and tightly crafted, but a little light on substance or consequence. A minor entry in indie film alone, but would lead to bigger and better things from Anderson.

    Underated Anderson at his cinematic birth. An energetic story and well-fleshed characters bring his debut film to life.
