06.01.05DVD picked it up on DVD. Now all Criterion has to do is put out Bottle Rocket. I like this movie but it still isn't connecting with me quite as much as Tenenbaums and Rushmore... although I suspect I may still be growing into this. I love Anderson's impeccable compositions and iconographic costumes.
12.29.04R/C Frederick Anderson continues to make interesting, funny, melancholy, unique films. This film is less an emsemble (certain parts such as played by Huston and Goldblum are relegated to pretty minor roles), focusing more on Murray and Wilson. The funniest parts were used in the trailer. I found the film to be more serious than wacky. It was still really solid though, with the now-expected top notch mise-en-scene, music, acting, editing, and writing. I loved everything having to do with the documentary filmmaking aspect and the fictious sea creatures which creep and crawl in the film's cracks, but it's still not as fun as Rushmore, which manages to be funny even when its sad. This (and Tennenbaums) is just sad when it's sad, but that ain't bad. Can't wait for a Criterion DVD release.
