Bottle Rocket

Three friends pursue their dreams in unexpected ways


Why watch this film?

Martin Scorsese named it one of his favorite films of the 90s: Wes Anderson's directorial debut, "The Thief Who Stole From Another Thief", co-written by Anderson and Owen Wilson. Better known by its original title, "Bottle Rocket," the movie isn't perfect but already shows off Anderson's trademark style: Eccentric characters in even stranger conflicts, set in a world of primary colors and symmetrical frames. The on-screen chemistry between brothers Owen and Luke Wilson, along with Robert Musgrave, make this movie a small gem.
