Catching up on my Wes Anderson

So, I caught up/rewatched all my Wes Anderson over the weekend.

While are probably familar with at least one film by Wes. If not, he writes and directs comedies with cleverness and melecholy.

Bottle Rocket - "one thing, you gotta get me one one those jumpsuits"
Rushmore - "I WROTE A HIT PLAY!"
The Royal Tenenbaums - "Somebody get rid of these damn mice"
"that's a trick question. you don't have a middle name."
"That was my mothers name"
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zizzou - "I'm going to find it, and kill it" "what are you going to use?" "Dynamite!"

I havn't seen The Darjeeling Limited yet, but I would like to hear your thoughts. He was going for more heart in this one, and I like Brody as an actor.

I think I enjoyed Rushmore and TRT the most. Life Aquatic seemed to drag, but I like the way it ended.

I found a fantastic article from Onion AV:
16 Films Without Which Wes Anderson Couldn't Have Happened


The thing I am enjoying about the films are that they progress so slowly they you almost might get bored or lost right in a specific moment.
Then, once the story plays out into a musical scene or planes out, such as when Royal took Chas' kids out for some mischief in the city, it makes those scenes that much more exciting..

Or in bottle rocket when they steal the car, then it breaks down...

Even shocking scenes that only play onscreen for a second, for instance.. when they breifly tell how Margot loses part of her finger, no emotion....


I didn't not hate, but I did not understand Tenenbaums when it first came out.. I was only about 19 or so. So now, I am beefing up my Netflix with some of those 16 titles.. has anyone seen any of those? I gotta admit, I was never much of a movieholic, I havn't really heard of any of those.
