Filmmakers

(note, this section is being redeveloped)

Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson met in a playwriting class at the University of Texas.1 Well, perhaps "met" is too strong of a word.  They were, in fact, classmates in the same course. On the first day, Wes decided to place himself in a corner rather than sit at the table in the small class.  After a few days in the corner, he noticed a student in another corner reading the New York Times -- it was Owen Wilson.  Wes and Owen did not speak to one another that semester, but neither found the way to the table.  The next semester, Owen approached Wes as if he was an old friend.  Out of a semester of corner-sitting silence, the Anderson-Wilson team was born.

Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson, the filmmakers of Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums represent a new generation. In a world of huge budgets and computer-generated films, the films of Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson represent a "breath of fresh air," to use the old cliché. The filmmaking of these films represent a dual-face, looking both to the past and forward to the future -- a key feature of a true masterpiece.
