You can always tell it's a Wes Anderson movie when you are watching one of his creations. I just love how the films so often blend quirky plots with technical precision, adopting a similar style so that each film already seems familiar. However, it is interesting to take note of how much his filmmaking has evolved since his 1994 short, Bottle Rocket.
The 13-minute film, which would two years later become the feature of the same name, doesn't have Anderson's trademark style that audiences have become accustomed to over the past twenty years. It's shot in black and white, has a jazzy score, and looks and feels more like a Woody Allen flick than a Wes Anderson production.
