Audience Reviews for Bottle Rocket
Interesting if you want to know how Bottle Rocket started out. I'm glad that Anderson eventually made the decision to reshoot for the feature length version, but the tone in here is different and interesting as well. Maybe continuing with this tone in the feature length film would have improved it, but that's just a long shot guess.
This black and white short film by Wes Anderson, which was expanded upon in Anderson's debut feature film, is a neat little film. It carries some of the hallmarks of the director's work, but it sort of feels like a young filmmaker trying to emulate Tarantino a little, which is understandable as Tarantino was the big man on the indie campus at the time. For the most part the feature version is an all around improvement, as Anderson would create more of his own style. Still, seeing his beginnings, both as a filmmaker and the early incarnation of the feature's premise, is fun.
