Third time's a charm

I am a big Wes Anderson fan. I have yet to get tired of Bill Murray’s quirky Steve Zissou in The Life Aquatic, and I wish I could experience life as any of The Royal Tenenbaums, just for a day. I love the weirdness that is Bottle Rocket, yet for some reason I had trouble getting into The Darjeeling Limited. I fell asleep the first two times I tried to watch it, most likely due to the fact that I started watching it late at night.

After a busy weekend, my husband and I decided to watch a movie and I was a little bummed when he picked this film because I was sure I'd fall asleep again. Fortunately I made it through and was pleasantly surprised with what I'd missed before. I wouldn't say it's my favorite Anderson movie, but I loved it none the less. The scenery is beautiful, and the interactions between the 3 brothers though subtle are hilarious.

*Aren't these guys just adorable!?*

Next on my list is his latest film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox! Have I mentioned that I’m a HUGE Roald Dahl fan?


  1. You will LOVE Fantastic Mr Fox. It has all the wit and charm of his 'people' movies, but with animals instead.

    I can honestly say I haven't laughed so much in a movie for a while.

    Flying Ducks

  2. i also fell asleep watching this! maybe i should try again too...

  3. The Royal Tenenbaums is a great film with a great soundtrack, Elliott Smith 'Needle In The Hay' when Richie tries to take his own life, Lennon's 'Look At Me' and also The Ramones.

    The Darjeeling Limited has a slow pace but it tells a great story, I believe it also featured 'Suite Bergamasque' which is a beautiful song.
