The Brothers Bloom (2008)
The Brothers Bloom are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they’ve decided to take on one last job – showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.

I really loved this movie, and overall it was original and made an impression all it’s own. However, with that being said, did anyone notice some strong influence from the films of Wes Anderson and Hal Ashby? The style of camera-work, the eccentricities, the hodge podge of time periods, and the soundtrack/score reminded me of films like “Rushmore,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Harold & Maude,” and “The Last Detail.” I mean, there was even a Cat Stevens song used, for crying out loud! The director sites Peter Bogdanovich and John Huston…I can see Bogdanovich, for the “period piece” elements, but not really the John Huston influence at all.
