Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket to Join the Criterion Collection

You're gonna see a side of Dignan that you haven't seen before.

A decade after attaining cult classic status, Wes Anderson‘s Bottle Rocket is getting the deluxe DVD treatment.

In a report posted by MTV Movies yesterday, the director was quoted as saying fans of his first film will soon be able to see an expanded version:

“We’ve just begun work with the Criterion Collection to do ‘Bottle Rocket’ on a new DVD that’s going to have all kinds of stuff. There’s a lot of ‘Bottle Rocket’ that was on the cutting room floor, so we have a lot to work with on that one.”

Bottle Rocket has long divided critics — Roger Ebert called it “unwound and indulgent,” and The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Mick LaSalle referred to it as a “grueling, numbing black hole” — but the movie has plenty of passionate fans who have complained about what MTV Movies summed up as “the crappy treatment [it] has received on DVD.”

The report gives no word on a release date for the Criterion reissue, and it isn’t available for pre-order at Amazon yet, so it’s presumably a ways off — but this should still be good news for Anderson fans.
