Bottle Rocket

Friday, Oct 7 at 7:30 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Wes Anderson. 1996, 91 mins. 35mm. With Owen Wilson, Luke Wilson, Ned Dowd, Robert Musgrave, Andrew Wilson, Lumi Cavazos, James Caan. In Anderson’s beloved, tonally distinctive debut comedy, three aimless Texas friends aspire to a life of crime and outlaw notoriety, elaborately scheming up low-level burglaries that ride the line between fantasy role-play and real-world consequences. While Owen and Luke Wilson steal the show, earning robust Hollywood careers in the years that followed, Caan turns up as an eccentric local con man named Mr. Henry who sets the boys up for their big take. He comes across as a forbidding tough guy, but may be just as delusional as his protégés.
