For those of you who enjoy the films of Wes Anderson, here are a couple of video documentaries/video essays on his first two films, Bottle Rocket and Rushmore -- which is one of my favorite movies of all time. These videos are actually adapted from the first two chapters of a book written by Matt Zoller Seitz called The Wes Anderson Collection. Here's the description of it:
Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish—and thoroughly original.
The author teamed up with editor Steven Santos to help bring his book to life. There's a lot of interesting stuff included in these videos, and they are definitely worth watching.
