sail away sail away... bo burnham is such a fantastic writer, his standup is filled with self-deprecating humor but also a sense of humanity in the absurdity of life and identity. this film hit home for me, he talks about depression and anxiety and that is what this film was about. elsie fisher is the quiet but will not give up and still curious about the world yet fearful of taking the steps she wants to take to get to…
This movie is about these guys who aim low but they get there, they accomplish their goals. And bottle rockets are these fireworks that only go so high and they just make a little pop and that's all they are supposed to do.
Quoted by Wes Anderson quoting James Caan.
I love seeing shorts that were later made into features, especially seeing the beginning of Anderon's filmmaking career and work. Can't wait to see this story in its entirety.
