The Rolling Stones: 2000 Man

"Anderson has a fine sense of how music works against an image....I love the scene in Bottle Rocket when Owen Wilson's character, Dignan, says, 'They'll never catch me, man, 'cause I'm fuckin' innocent.' Then he runs off to save one of his partners in crime and gets captured by the police, over '2000 Man' by the Rolling Stones. He - and the music - are proclaiming who he really is: he's not innocent in the eyes of the law, but he's truly an innocent. For me, it's a transcendent moment. And transcendent moments are in short supply these days."

--Martin Scorcese on Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket

I think Martin just really, really likes the Rolling Stones.
