With a new film starring Owen Wilson coming out in theaters this week-end, I thought it would be a great opportunity to discuss his best films. Before seeing him in practically every Wes Anderson film I didn’t think much of the guy as an actor. Sure, he seems like a nice fellow, but man, did he chose some bad movies.
This isn’t about those movies though. This is about his best work, in my opinion, and what he will hopefully be remembered for.
After the dreadful looking Internship he will be back working with Wes Anderson in The Grand Budapest Hotel and some more renowned filmmakers like Paul Thomas Anderson and Peter Bogdanovich.
Without further ado, here are my top five Owen Wilson films:
1. The Royal Tenenbaums (2001, Wes Anderson)
2. Midnight in Paris (2011, Woody Allen)
3. The Darjeeling Limited (2007, Wes Anderson)
4. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2005, Wes Anderson)
5. Bottle Rocket (1996, Wes Anderson)
