Early Wes Anderson, before I think he really figured out his style fully. Still excellent.
Outstanding first film hilarious and unpredictable. Early signs of his style but still feels experimental.
One of Wes Anderson’s best films. Some people say they don’t love Wes Anderson movies and to those people I say watch Bottle Rocket.
Really simple and plain but has some charm of an Anderson film
Such a fun watch. If you're a fan of Wes Anderson, this short film will show you his origins, as well as Owen Wilson's.
A directorial debut that stands out as a unique film among Anderson’s filmography. Colorful characters who coyly play with the narrative.
Wes Anderson’s short film is quirky and unique.
Full of quirky dialogue and symmetrical frames, its fun to see the planting of the seed that would grow into Wes Anderson's signature style
If you’ve seen the full movie from 96’ this makes for an interesting viewing. Very bare bones. Marks the beginning of a great film career.
Was really fun and cool to see the foundation for what would become a feature film of the same name
