Title: (Wes Anderson) TENENBAUMS 2 DISC SET
Post by: finlayr on August 12, 2003, 09:28:06 PM
Hey.  I've just become a huge Wes Anderson fan and I've yet to see Bottle Rocket, his first feature.  Can anyone tell me if he's made any short films (that I could find somewhere) and a little bit about him maybe.  But really what I wanna know is this:
I just watched DISC 2 of The Royal Tenenbaums DVD.  Great DVD by the way.  But what the hell is The Peter Bradley show all about?  I mean, it IS a joke right???  Or is it really a recording of a real show that just didn't go right?  Can anyone please tell me.  Thanks.

I'm too late, but anyway:

Wes made one short called "Bottle Rocket", which his first feature film is obviously based on. You can see the short on http://www.wilson-brothers.com.
Wes was born on May 1, 1969 in Houston. He studied philosophy at the University of Texas in Austin where he met Owen Wilson. Together they began to write screenplay and shot the above mentioned short together. James L. Brooks liked it and gave them money to make the feature film "Bottle Rocket"...
