The Darjeeling Limited

Next Friday the next installment from pretty much my favorite director of all time hits the screens. The way I see it, If “Bottle Rocket”, “Rushmore”, “The Royal Tenenbaums”, and “The Life Aquatic” are any indication, I think it’s a safe bet that I'll love it. Then again, Wes Anderson could make shadow puppets for an hour and a half and I’d think they were the best ones I’ve ever seen. And the art direction would no doubt be fantastic. And the way the camera moves would be about as close to perfect as you can get. And the type would be awesome. And the soundtrack would be among the best things you've ever heard.

And your good friends over at Fox Searchlight have posted Wes’s gem of a short, “Hotel Chevalier”, over at iTunes so check it out as it’s good and it’s free. Oh, and Natalie Portman takes her clothes off. So there’s that. I also understand it might run in the theater prior to the full film but if, like me, you can’t wait, go check it now.
