  1. Luis's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Hardly the best of Wes Anderson. But enough to put it on the map. Over the years it has definitely become smaller. Especially considering that here, his marked style here wasn't as remarkable yet but it was his debut so I can't really blame him for it.

  2. Will's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    My fav Wes Anderson. My favourite Anderson trope is character based comedy and this is easily the best example of that. It’s stylish without the preoccupation with form that you see as he progresses. The lighting and costumes are stunning and really add to the general atmosphere of the film. Owen Wilson is at his absolute best, and there are parts that are fantastically heartwarming. I think it’s an all time fave.

  6. meepy's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    It’s true that I watched this only because of the name ‘Wes Anderson’, but watching a film for the filmmaker’s craft & style is actually more interesting than just seeing it as one singular film. Bottle Rocket was the beginning of Wes Anderson’s unique style. In the dialogue, colours, characters- he has managed to create an entirely different world that is entirely the same of our current one.

  7. Viola Valéry's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Probably his funniest, nihilistic, romantic film.

  8. DanielSpeight's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

  9. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Witty and less gimmicky than Anderson's later flicks. Good debut!

  10. Adam Laurence Pitt's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

  11. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    The debut feature from Wes Anderson, expanding the short of the same name, already has a lot of his main traits in place. The script, written by Anderson and Owen Wilson, is a lot of fun, and the lead performances, from Wilson and his brother Luke, are wonderful.

  12. Yvonx S's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Such an enjoyable romp featuring awkward twenty-something oddballs starring as leads in their own inner Clyde and Clyde movie. Loved the jockeying for position and the loyalty and brotherhood surfacing at every twist and turn. A fun film of amateur crims bungling along with sincere hearts and absurd posturing. Very loveable.

  13. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Secure direction, nice characters, nice script, nice and dumb entertainment.

  14. Mistral Orhan Jean-Pierre Contrastin's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    It is a Wes Anderson movie but not as strong as his later works.

  15. Shane Ewen's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Not an Anderson classic, but a solid debut.

  16. Ramzi's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Great talent on show on and off the screen, even if not everything clicks. A very pleasant watch.

  17. George Bradley's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    10th April 2018. (RATING: ***1/2)

  18. David MacGowan's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    You can see why this is one of Scorsese's favourite films. The single element that comes over is CHARM, and it has continued throughout Wes Anderson's films, along with originality of script. I saw "Isle of Dogs" last week and, although the technology involved is jaw-dropping, the magical charm remains. Thanks, MUBI, for putting this online - it's one of Anderson's best efforts.

  19. Al Green's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    A kind of sketch of a film for all Anderson's work to come. Not particularly distinguished but you can see some of the stylistic themes emerging.

  20. Tja's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Cop, to juvenile cornered in cold store - 'Freeze!' Well I laughed, otherwise this is a cookey take on three teen friends, two with diagnosed mental issues, who resort to pointless petty crime. Hardly Wes Anderson's finest and gives little away about his dazzling potential and achievements.

  21. Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    You can't tell it's even a debut film. Fiendishly funny and quotable, but also quirky and sweet. The Criterion edition is great, lots of cool supplements.

  22. Harriehhh's rating of the film Bottle Rocket

    Short but sweet; an absolute delight from start to finish and an impressive debut from Anderson.
