The last gasp of colonialism will be symmetrical and centre-framed. Pretty, of course, but hard not to be snarky when a movie is so - to use the parlance of Tumblr - relentlessly problematic. I felt uncomfortable and kind of grubby after watching it. Brody has a good face, mind.
A spiritual odyssey with an amazing soundtrack and arresting visuals. While the story can seem a little dull compared to Anderson's other movies, The Darjeeling Limited is bursting with color and a certain tenderness we've come to expect from the director.
It's hard to say a Wes Anderson film is just "okay" when they all have their special charms. Something about this was kind of bland - still, funny, great music, beautiful locations, and Schwartzman, Brody, and Wilson were fantastic. It was still missing that oomph factor, which I ironically found in Hotel Chevalier (leading me to connect with Schwartzman's character more).
Un elenco maravilloso y una película sumamente elocuente. Otra de las grandes obras de Wes Anderson, cuyas películas son tan atractivas y encantadoras visualemente, que Anderson pareciera sostener un pincel y pintar cada una de sus escenas. Un guion muy ingenioso en un comienzo, pero con un final no a la altura de lo acontecido. Aún así, eso no le quita a la obra su genialidad fotográfica y artística.
Anderson's films are comprised of vignettes, and I'm constantly waiting for something more/bigger to happen, but what's happening is the thing that's going to happen, and it either resonates with you or not. I loved Rushmore/Life Aquatic/Moonrise. I found Grand Budapest wearisome and Bottle Rocket too oblique. Darjeeling is somewhere in the middle. I really enjoyed Adrien Brody's presence and the anti-Aptow bromance.
