It isn't the best film of Wes Anderson, but it's a great film. It's really interesting seeing the Wes Anderson's style being transported and adaptaded to an Indian style. I really enjoyed the development of the relationship among the three brothers, such great performances, specially, in my opinion, the performance of Owen Wilson. It's great to see the evolution of Wes, and seeing in all of his movies his "signature"
Though some consider it kind of overrated, I love everything about this movie, I love Wes's precision, the tone used and the ironic view on the turists' tendency to follow the "eat, pray and love" routine when they travel. Also, Jason and Adrien are two fo my favourite actors ever, which only adds positive points to the overall work. The humour is something that also gets to me, it's somewhat "classy"
Fun satirical adventure from Wes, those brothers were trying to knew what went on during their "journey". Good acting and quirky styles sure always make Wes a signature director we know. Somehow Joe Dassin's tune always makes me feel good as well whenever I start listening to that now. :) (Bonus points if you saw that prequel short, too.)
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.
