Just when you think that Amex’s overwrought DeNiro spot couldn’t be redeemed, they go and get Wes Anderson to direct his own Amex commercial, which contains all the touches that make him one of my favorite film-makers.  And hey, Jason Schwartzman!

    One of my favorite directors, but I wish he and Owen would get back to cowriting. I think the shift to Noah Baumbach for Life Aquatic was a bad move.

    no kidding. bottle rocket is one of my favorite (and most underrated) movies of all time.

    That was certainly better than the M. Night Shyamalan one.

    The hidden joke here is that the entire commercial is a sendup of Truffaut’s “Day for Night”, down to every last detail. Fantastic!

    I was waiting to see how long it would take for someone to mention that.
