WES ANDERSON: THE LIFE CINEMATIC
Double Feature!
BOTTLE ROCKET / THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU
BOTTLE ROCKET
1996, Sony Repertory, 91 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

The movie that introduced Wes Anderson and the Wilson brothers (Owen and Luke) to the world is a sweet, hilarious combination of coming-of-age tale and heist movie. Owen plays a persistently optimistic slacker whose dreams of a big score don't quite mesh with his lack of aptitude for crime and, in the role of elder statesman, James Caan plays the mob boss with whom Wilson and his friends collide.


10th Anniversary!

THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU
2004, Buena Vista Pictures, 119 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

Featuring an all-star cast, this wonderfully strange film about an oceanographer and hack undersea documentarian (Bill Murray) seeking revenge on the shark that ate his partner is both hilarious and melancholy. A combination Jacques Cousteau and Captain Ahab, Murray plans to film his underwater revenge on the infamous jaguar shark. Those along for the journey include his ex-wife (Anjelica Huston), her ex-husband (Jeff Goldblum), a salty seaman (Willem Dafoe) and a man who may or may not be his son (Owen Wilson).
