Bottle Rocket in Novemeber finally completes my Criterion Anderson Collection

19 August 2008 11:14 AM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

To be brutally honest, I've been growing somewhat tired of Anderson's ongoing dire and deadpan family dramedies, but I think it's due to my own shifting sensibilities rather than anything that the director has been doing wrong. Wes Anderson is a friggin' American treasure and Bottle Rocket remains a crucial 90s indie flick. That said, this DVD has been a long time coming and news of this brilliant double disc set fills me with all kinds of giddy feelings this hot Tuesday morn. The set, which streets on Nov. 25th, will also be released in single disc form for those of you not willing to shell out 50 bucks. Full list of special features after the break.

Director-approved Double-disc Set Special Edition Features:

- New, restored high-definition digital transfer supervised and approved by director Wes Anderson and director of photography Robert Yeoman

- Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack

- Commentary by director/co-writer »
