Trailer for The Darjeeling Limited

A trailer is available for the upcoming Wes Anderson film, The Darjeeling Limited! This is, alongside the Coen brothers’ No Country for Old Men, my most anticipated movie right now.

I do love Wes Anderson. Rushmore and The Royal Tenebaums both made my top 100, but I think Bottle Rocket and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou are almost as brilliant. Merely having a favourite Wes Anderson film pretty much ensures I’ll be well-disposed to you. (For the record, most people prefer The Royal Tenebaums, but my favourite is still Rushmore. Though Tyson makes a strong case for Bottle Rocket and Nando, my supervisor, loves The Life Aquatic.)

Based on the trailer to Darjeeling, I’m bracing myself for the inevitable complaints like the ones that followed The Life Aquatic: he’s repeating himself, he won’t move past his interest in talented-but-quirky families, he hasn’t “grown as an artist”, blah blah blah. Man, do I find that a lame criticism. As though the cineplexes of Canada are so saturated with smart, moving, bittersweet comedies that Anderson can hang up his camera and move on. They aren’t. I checked.
