the darjeeling (un)limited.


I just watched, "the darjeeling limited." I am aware that the film has been out for over a year now, but i never got around to actually renting it let alone seeing it in theatres. i'm incredibly glad that i was finally able to free myself so i could enjoy it. the wes anderson film did not dissappoint. in fact, it kept me on the edge of my seat, contrary to what others might think.

the leads in the film are: adrien brody, jason schwartzman, and owen wilson whom all play brothers who are on a spiritual quest to reconnect after not speaking to one another after a year. This is all done while traveling through india. what may surprise people is the "first part" to the darjeeling limited. 'hotel chevalier' serves as a 13 minute prologue to the film featuring a love story between jason schwartzman and natalie portman. although natalie portman does not reappear in the "second part" of the film, she does make a lovely impact. I was completely enamored by the 'first part' of the film as i saw it as a charmingly, seductive piece. The 'second part' of the film does give a few laughs and surprises. it's definitely worth seeing.
