I'm running through The Portable Chekhov right now. He is so goddamn good at making any moment he wants to feel important and enlightening. He is one of those writers that was just on another level.

I liked Bottle Rocket a lot. I remember liking Tenenbaums but I'm afraid to go back to it and view it in the frame that I think he puts his movies in now.

I also really liked The Fantastic Mr. Fox....
