ROYAL TENENBAUMS, THE

Building off of the artistic success of BOTTLE ROCKET and RUSHMORE Wes Anderson makes his first narratively and stylistically ambitious effort with TENENBAUMS. What starts off as a straight story of familial betrayal, dishonesty and disappointment becomes a deeply emotional triumph. It has a head-turning ensemble of Gene Hackman, Angelica Huston, Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, Gwenyth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, Bill Murray and Danny Glover and is the last collaboration between writers Anderson and Owen Wilson. A film that entertains, dazzles and moves, in that order, throughout. It's the movie that declared Anderson was a true cinematic force. (R.J. LaForce)
