The Royal Tenenbaums

Wes Anderson is among the few living directors -- perhaps even the only one but I've not checked -- who has a lifetime pass to the Criterion Collection, by which I mean whatever cryptic criteria Criterion uses to decide what's in and what's out, Wes slides through those doors. His latest (2014's Grand Budapest Hotel) is his only film not in the collection, and I'm sure it will be by the time we're done with this project.

This week, though, we're talking about his 2001 film The Royal Tenenbaums, which is all sorts of wonderful. We get to talk a bit about some of those sorts with our dear friends Casey and Jonathan Hape. Long time listeners will remember that they joined us for our last Anderson outing; listeners who stick around till the end of any episode may know that Jonathan wrote our theme music. There's too much to get into for an hour long show, and even pushing 1:05 we miss quite a bit, but we had fun. Thanks for joining us, Casey and Jonathan! And thanks for listening, you listeners!
