Product description

Review

"Wes Anderson has only two previous features, "Bottle Rocket "(1996) and "Rushmore" (1999), but it's already clear that this 32-year-old writer-director possesses one of the freshest voices in American movies. His is a talent that Jean Renoir might have admired."--Dave Kehr, "The New York Times"
""The Royal Tenenbaums" speaks in its own singular voice: at once tender and probing, mindful of New York and its special mixture of grit and glory, but confident enough to mold it into a big, faded magic playhouse, a limitless extension of the Tenenbaum family's private universe. I've never seen moments like these in any other movie."--Kent Jones, "Film Comment"
"Memorable . . . Charming . . . A strong imagination is at work in every part of the picture."--Stuart Klawans, "The Nation"
