News and Notes
The comparisions to Dennis Hopper are inevitable, but Owen C. Wilson is well on his way to making his own cinematic name. He stars in and co-wrote the screenplay to Bottle Rocket, a lovable caper movie that easily could have been called Reservoir Slackers. Wilson plays Dignan, a wannabe criminal who's more than a little off-center. James Caan makes a nicely unpredictable cameo as, what else, a crime boss. Lumi Cavazos is well-cast as housekeeper / love-interest, Inez.
