The Darjeeling Limited

Unabashed Wes Anderson fanboy that I am, I can't help but start a thread celebrating the release of the trailer of his newest film. I just watched it for the first time, and holy shit I'm excited.

Aww, yeah man. I knew there was a good reason this has been my second most anticipated film of 2007.

That trailer is just oozing with W.A. qualities, and actually looks like it could be his most touching film to date. It's also got one hell of an ensemble with Wilson, Brody and the absolutely stellar Jason Swartzman (I'm so happy him and Anderson are finally reuniting!)

The Life Aquatic colour palette for the promo poster made me keekle

The very Mark Mothersbaugh-sounding music in the first half of the trailer gives this film a very familiar tone as well, even before I sit down to watch it in theatres. Ah well, Wes always sets a tone I can jive with, so

I'm cautiously excited about this film. I hope it'll be great.

I keep waiting for Wes to strike out, but he never does--it's just one solid, stand-up double after another. Here's hoping for more of the same.

I know what you're saying. I was cautiously excited for The Life Aquatic too. The law of averages says he's going to make a clunker at some point. TLA was the only Wes film I didn't absolutely adore immediately, but I obviously do now. It's one of my favorite films of all time and it's not even in the top 50% of Wes' output:

Tenenbaums
Rushmore
The Life Aquatic
Bottle Rocket

The fact that the Darjeeling Limited is going to land anywhere on that more or less insures that I'm going to love it. Fanboy I may be, but he's an awfully nice thing to be a fanboy of.

Truly.

Wes is easily in my top echelon of modern directors. He has yet to create a film I don't love.

I've been watching Rushmore quite a bit recently, and it has a different quality to it than The Life Aquatic, almost like a lack of cynicism. I think that can be attributed to Noah Baumbach replacing Owen Wilson as the main co-writer.

The Life Aquatic is still my fave Anderson flick, and I can't wait to see Darjeeling.

Darjeeling is being co-written with Jason Swartzman. Should be interesting to see what new dynamic his writing brings to the formula.

I'm a Wes Anderson skeptic. I follow film a lot but I have no clue why he is as popular as he is.

His films are too similar to each other. There is a notable difference between Bottle Rocket and Rushmore, but for his films after that, it gets very sketchy. The composition schemes in the filmmaking look similar and the themes have more similarities than differences. Anderson makes films about dysfunctional relationships or families coming together. Darjeeling Limited makes it very obvious that that theme will not change either.

Other filmmakers try to change and evolve, but Anderson seems done. Like Kevin Smith, he seems to make films for a fan base only. I wish he'd challenge himself more often. Fantastic Fox will be a challenge so I'm hopeful he does that film well.

I'll see Darjeeling Limited to see if there is anything good, but my hopes aren't too high.

I thought there was an aesthetic difference between Rushmore/Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic.

Camera movements (more panning than usual, etc...), color choices (warm colors to the basic blue/yellow/red scheme), and like I said above, I think there was a level of cynicism in Life Aquatic compared to the rest. I'm sure someone else has more to say here.He stays similar, but still tries to move forward.

Wes Anderson

I watched "Bottle Rocket" the other night...such a funny film. I really can't decide with one of his films is my favorite though. They're all brilliant.

Love the trailer and Darjeeling is definitely my number 1 movie to see for 2007.
