The Darjeeling Limited

The Darjeeling Limited

I was lucky enough to attend a screening of The Darjeeling Limited last Monday and I have to tell you I was completely enamored with it. The infamous ‘nude Natalie Portman’ short film, Hotel Chevalier, played before the movie, and was a fantastic accompaniment, adding more layers to Jason Schwartzman’s character that added more clarity to parts of the main feature. Owen Wilson seemed more world-wise than usual, and acted his socks off. Appearances by Anderson regulars also add even more interest to a finely detailed mise-en-scene, with most of the movie set in India there’s a lot of room for the quirky touches that are so typical of Wes Anderson.

So, yeah. I loved it. I’ll link to my review when it’s up, but rest assured it’s a great movie.
