reviews { movie: Darjeeling Limited

I loved this movie. I'm a big Wes Anderson fan. All you nay-sayers can kiss my ass. This movie continues in the vein of Rushmore, The Royal Tannenbaums, The Life Aquatic. Its a beautiful movie, the DVD comes with 'Hotel Chevalier' a prequel short that sets up one of the brother characters (also shows Natalie Portman completely nude).

We watched this to cleanse the stain of 'Saw' from our brains. The characters we're well developed, odd, painfully hip, which are signatures of Wes Anderson films. Bill Murray makes an appearance.

Its a bit existential, but not to the level of I Heart Huckabees. While I didn't like it as much as Life Aquatic or Rushmore, it was still a strong movie, its a good 1.5 hours.
