In 2016, THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE EIGHTH DIMENSION is—if not quite a venerated classic—a beloved film in the contemporary cult canon. The vocal fanbase that coalesced around film in the VHS era peaked in 2006, when the film got a deluxe release on DVD after years of limited accessibility. Since then, venerated cinema blog The Dissolve devoted a weeklong series of blog entries and essays to BUCKAROO BANZAI, and no less an auteur than Wes Anderson tipped his red watchcap to the film in the closing credits of THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU.
