Another Portland Blog

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

 

"I think around 750 million Euros or something."

Everyone once loved Wes Anderson's films and then along came The Life Aquatic.. Now he's the subject of parodies over at The Onion and his latest effort The Darjeeling Limited, is already being written off as twee and redundant. It's slated to open here in Portland on Friday.

I'm already expecting to enjoy the hell out of it because, one, I enjoy the hell out of all of Anderson's other movies and, two, it's useless for me to resist the sirens' call of Bill Murray, another soundtrack filled with cherry-picked rock songs from the '60s and amazing art direction. Plus, to up the ante, Anderson has tossed in Natalie Portman's bare behind for good measure.




Or at least he has in Hotel Chevalier, the director's 13-minute prequel to Darjeeling that, as you probably know because you're just as curious to see Portman naked as the rest of us, is available as a free download on iTunes or on any number of chopped-up bootleg copies available on You Tube.

The prequel is great but, I've gotta be honest here, Portman's derriere isn't its strong suit for reasons that would be a spoiler to reveal here. I could prattle on about Hotel Chevalier for another two paragraphs but Aaron Mesh already did a better job of it two weeks ago on WW's still-not-a-blog "wire." Click here for his review.
