Story: Two clueless guys plan a robbery?
Why You Should See It: Wes Anderson and the Wilson Brothers are who they are because of this short film, which eventually became the feature film you’ve probably never seen (but you have seen “Grand Budapest Hotel,” haven’t you?).
As legend would have it, this short got into Sundance, was championed by James L.Brooks and became the feature length version you haven’t seen, catapulting the Wilson Bros to stardom and Wes Anderson into his own industry.
It’s interesting to see Anderson establish his voice and tell a story in pure form, meaning without reaching the cutesy tool kit he has 24/7 access to nowadays. I Can’t Believe It’s On Youtube.
