bottle rocket criterion edition on november 25

I wrote about this when I first heard that the criterion edition of Wes Anderson’s Bottle Rocket was finally coming to DVD (one of those travesties in the order of The Name of This Band is the Talking Heads taking over 10 years to be released on CD).

The DVD will be out on November 25 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a must. Dignan is Owen Wilson’s best character, the soundtrack is one of my favorites from the Anderson films and I think this is the best of Wes Anderson’s movies.

Here’s the feature list…

* – DIRECTOR-APPROVED DOUBLE-DISC SET SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:
* – New, restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised and approved by director Wes Anderson and director of photography Robert Yeoman, with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack
* – Audio commentary featuring Anderson and co-writer/actor Owen Wilson
* – The Making of “Bottle Rocket”: an original documentary by filmmaker Barry Braverman featuring Anderson, producer James L. Brooks, actors James Caan and Luke and Owen Wilson, and others
* – The original thirteen-minute black-and-white Bottle Rocket short film from 1992
* – Eleven deleted scenes
* – Anamorphic test, storyboards, location photos
* – Behind-the-scenes photographs by Laura Wilson
* – The Shafrazi Lectures, No. 1: Bottle Rocket
* – Murita Cycles, a 1978 short film by Braverman
* – PLUS: A booklet featuring an appreciation by Martin Scorsese and an essay by Brooks
* – Original artwork by Ian Dingman
