Wes Anderson, at age thirty, has a very special kind of talent: He knows how to convey the simple joys and interactions between people so well and with such richness. This kind of sensibility is rare in movies. Leo McCarey, the director of Make Way for Tomorrow and The Awful Truth, comes to mind. And so does Jean Renoir. I remember seeing Renoir’s films as a child and immediately feeling connected to the characters through his love for them. It’s the same with Anderson. I’ve found myself going back and watching Bottle Rocket several times. I’m also very fond of his second film, Rushmore (1998)—it has the same tenderness, the same kind of grace. Both of them are very funny, but also very moving. Excerpt from an article written by Martin Scorsese in 2000

I wonder whether he wrote letters to Spike Jonze, too…

Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive. Martin Scorsese

During the scene where Billy and Frank are talking, Jack Nicholson felt that he wasn’t “intimidating” enough. Director Martin Scorsese reveals that the next day, Nicholson shocked everyone on set by deviating from the script and pulling out a weapon to frighten his co-star and provoke a genuine reaction. Scorsese says, “He pulled a gun on him. He didn’t tell me he had a gun. It was great… Leo’s reaction is real-time. I still get chills… It’s so real to me.” Of the incident, Dicaprio says, “It was one of the most memorable moments of my life, as far as being an actor is concerned.”

OK, Taxi Driver tonight? Yes yes?

Because of many reasons.

It still surprises me that the score was done in time…

Aw, Bernard. :’(
