As someone who doesn't profess to know a lot about Wes Anderson – I know who he is, and I've seen a few of his films, but that's about as far as my knowledge of the writer/director/producer goes – I can tell you that you don't have to be a Wes Anderson devotee to enjoy the short film below. That said, after reading a bit of background information from Slate, something tells me that Anderson fans are really going to appreciate the intricacies of its craftsmanship.

The film, titled "Castello Cavalcanti" and produced, apparently, by Prada, stars Jason Schwartzman as an American racing driver who finds himself stranded in the middle of a race with a broken car. The plot takes a strange turn from there, but we're not going to give it away. Scroll down to watch the entire seven-minute short film below.

      Awesome! Anderson is so underrated as a filmmaker. I mean, not only is the guy doing the whole enchilada--writes, directs, produces--but there's always this unique blend of humor, goofiness, wtf-i-ness, wisdom, pathos and poignancy. His stuff is always fresh too. There's next to nothing cliched, hackneyed or generic about his work. Can't wait for The Grand Budapest Hotel!

      Excellent. Wes is one of those directors I really go out of my way to see any of his material just because I'm such a fan of his style, and his group of "usual suspects" ain't so bad either! I'm glad Prada does these shorts with him, hopefully there'll be more in the future.

      I enjoyed Jason in Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" (Jason's film debut), so this should be good.

      Is there meant to be no dialogue? Very odd... then again I was never a fan of Anderson's work.

      I don't know if symbolism plays on Autoblog, but i think the guy may be dead. Heaven, hell, purgatory or that last flash of neurons before nothingness, take your pick.
