Bottle Rocket

 (1996)

Bottle Rocket Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

Wes Anderson first illustrated his lovingly detailed, slightly surreal cinematic vision in this witty and warm portrait of three young middle-class misfits. Fresh out of a mental hospital, gentle Anthony (Luke Wilson) finds himself once again embroiled in the machinations of his best friend, elaborate schemer Dignan (Owen Wilson). With the aid of getaway driver Bob (Robert Musgrave), they develop a needlessly complex, mildly successful plan to rob a small bookstore—then go “on the lam.” Also featuring Lumi Cavazos as Inez, the housekeeper Anthony falls in love with, and James Caan as local thief extraordinaire Mr. Henry, Bottle Rocket is a charming, hilarious, affectionate look at the folly of dreamers. Shot against radiant southwestern backdrops, it’s the film that put Anderson and the Wilson brothers on the map.

For more about Bottle Rocket and the Bottle Rocket Blu-ray release, see Bottle Rocket Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Bottle Rocket Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

As one would expect from the folks at Criterion, Bottle Rocket arrives on Blu-ray looking better than ever. Framed precisely in the film's original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and encoded with AVC Mpeg-4, Bottle Rocket exhibits all the qualities of projected film. Grain is present and delivered in levels appropriate for a twelve year old low-budget film. It's never distracting and adds to the movie's remarkable cinematography from Robert Yeoman. The film also displays rich, vibrant colors and many instances of stark primary hues used to highlight the moods of the characters. It's a stunning presentation that could only be possible with Blu-ray's exceptional visual fidelity.

Distracting artifacts are also never an issue with Bottle Rocket. I didn't detect a hint of edge enhancement, haloes, ringing or any of the normal culprits that detract from the viewing experience. Black levels are robust and the film displays an exceptional level of contrast throughout. Image detail is also outstanding with well-defined skin and fabric elements. The image also displays a great sense of dimensionality and depth of focus. It's worth noting, that as with every Criterion Collection release, the film's creators were involved in the transfer process. Both Cinematographer Robert Yeoman and Director Wes Anderson supervised the newly minted Blu-ray transfer. Therefore, it's doubtful that Bottle Rocket will ever look better.


Bottle Rocket Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Bottle Rocket also benefits on Blu-ray from the inclusion of a fantastic 5.1 DTS HD- Master Audio soundtrack. Criterion has clearly demonstrated their renowned commitment to quality by utilizing the best of the best technologies in their initial Blu-ray releases. Hopefully film fans will rejoice at these technologies being used on lower budget films that have never had such careful white glove treatment on home video before. As such, Bottle Rocket is primarily dialogue driven with a nice surround mix of Mark Mothersbaugh's eclectic score and Mr. Anderson's favorite British Invasion tracks. There's not a whole lot of surround activity to speak of, but the aforementioned dialogue and music is presented in a flawless manner. I've stressed on many occasions the importance of utilizing lossless audio on every release, regardless of action scenes. Bottle Rocket once again proves this to be true with crisp dialogue and rich, enveloping music. Bottle Rocket sounds fantastic.
