The Royal Tenenbaums

In my almost obsessive collecting of DVDs I carefully look at the DVDs and their packaging and content, interface, etc. One that I had been waiting a long time to see (the film primarily) was Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. I loved the film. Quirky and meticulous, Anderson creates an amazing visually stunning world that is built around the characters. The Web site uses Flash quite well and also features commentary by Owen Wilson. The only other Anderson film that I’ve seen is Rushmore, which I equally loved. Anderson (who cowrote this film as well as Rushmore” with Owen Wilson) constructs worlds and characters that are wildly funny, but also with a sadness and poignancy that is rare for comedy. I haven’t worked my way through all of the extra material on the second DVD, but what I’ve seen is great. This was my first Criterion Collection DVD, but not my last.
