My wife and I went to see The Darjeeling Limited tonight. For those who aren't familiar, it's the new film by Wes Anderson. (For more info click here.)
I've been waiting for a year now to see this film. Ever since The Life Aquatic was released on DVD I had been checking IMDB to see what his next film was going to be. Then when the first images leaked on the web I was so excited. But none of that compares to watching the full frame motion picture tonight.
The Darjeeling Limited is, to me, the most humorous film Wes Anderson has made to date. But that's possibly due to casting Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody, and Jason Schwartzman as lead characters. But don't let all the humor distract you from the ever growing beauty of the film. Their is still that wonderful center frame camera angle that Wes Anderson has turned in to an art form. And the plot of brotherhood and the need for one another is true to life and honest.
I know in a week, in a month, in a year I will look back on these words and they still won't explain the way I feel about this film. It's something to be seen and savored like a fine wine.
