Wow, I really needed this film... Although I still feel unfulfilled, as I always will, Linklater creates such great characters to exist with - fucking brilliant dialogue, it is truly a film about characters Paris disappears in the background. Small moments like when Celine tries to touch Jesse in the car but retreats her hand to cover her lips. Ugh, amazing, going to have to rewatch this before my iTunes rental expires! Fucking inspirational.
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.
