They All Laughed: Peter Bogdanovich Talks to Wes Anderson

This is a goldmine of greatness. A must-watch.

Wonderful anecdotes. I love how Wes Anderson has clearly memorized the entire movie. It’s an in-depth conversation about a movie that I adore, and it has made me want to run out and see it again. I love that they provide the clips of the moments discussed, so that you can see what they are talking about. My favorite section of their conversation has to do with a certain double-take given by Dorothy Stratten in the film, which Wes Anderson has appreciation for. Now that is how to watch a movie. Don’t just watch it. See it.

Thank you so much to Scott Myers for finding these clips and posting them.

    Thanks.
    That was great.
    Would love to see the same format for a talk on Last Picture Show.

    Dorothy was a vision. Poor girl.

    Phil – I know, I was sorry it was over. Chilling words from Bogdanovich in the video about Dorothy’s husband: “I thought he was benign.”

    I was unaware of how personal the film was – how much of it was biographical. Need to see it again. I love its crazy energy.
