Bottle Rocket

Earlier this month, we wrote about Matt Zoller Seitz‘s new book The Wes Anderson Collection, a book examining the work of writer/director Wes Anderson.

Matt has teamed up with editor Steven Santos to bring the book to the web in a documentary/video essay format. The first two chapters, on Bottle Rocket and Rushmore, are online and available to view after the jump.

What’s better than the first poster for a highly anticipated film? The first poster for a highly anticipated film directed by Wes Anderson. The Grand Budapest Hotel will open for business in 2014, featuring what’s possibly Anderson’s most star-studded cast yet:  Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Tom Wilkinson, Mathieu Amalric, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban and Tony Revolori, just to name a new. Wow.

Prada Candy L’eau is a perfume, and in this case Prada Candy L’Eau is also a three-part long-form ad for said fragrance. (Well, “long-form” might be a stretch, as this is three and a half minutes with titles.)

But it is one created by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, and one brimming with Anderson’s signature fetishes for composition, style, and color. Lea Seydoux stars with Peter Gadiot and Rodolphe Pauly, who play two guys eager to win the affections of the lady. There’s something of a commercial-pop reference to Truffaut’s Jules and Jim going on here, but nothing wrong with that, especially when Anderson and Coppola make it all so breezy and fun.
