Nowadays,  Wes  Anderson must be easily one of the most interesting American directors at work so, obviously, I was really eager to check his directing debut.

After Dignan (Owen Wilson) convinces his pals Bob (Robert Musgrave) and Anthony (Luke Wilson) to rob a local bookstore, the trio holes up in a border-town motel, where Anthony falls for a beautiful maid (Lumi Cavazos) and the boys ponder their criminal future. The sweet oddball gem, which marked the acting debuts of Owen and Luke Wilson, also introduced the world to the quirky directorial vision of Wes Anderson.

A Complete Review of Wes Anderson's work (10 movies items)

" Cast : Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson What was it about? Focusing on a trio of friends and their elaborate plan to pull off a simple robbery and go on the run. My two cents: Apparently, this movie didn’t get much love when it was released and it was a big box-office flop at the time (apparently, Owen Wilson even considered joining the Marines afterwards, as he thought that he had no future as an actor). Well, I really liked it and, in fact, I believe it is even one of the most enjoyable movie"
