And we’re on to the film that launched Wes Anderson’s directing career! Starring real-life brothers Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson as non-brothers Anthony and Dignan, two friends who commit felonies for fun, along with Robert Musgrave as their friend Bob and real-life third Wilson brother Andrew Wilson as Bob’s in-movie brother Future Man and returning Aug-Heist con man James Caan, this caper was made for $5 million but only grossed about $500,000. Nevertheless, critics did take note, with Martin Scorcese going so far as to call it one of his favorite films of the decade. Far from a dud, the film lit Anderson’s fuse and set his career on a stellar trajectory. We’re putting on our matching yellow jumpsuits and firing up Bottle Rocket for our next Aug-Heist adventure!
