Hotel Chevalier

I hope all you Wes ANDERSON fans out there, headed over to iTunes and downloaded or at least watched the 13 minute prequel to "The Darjeeling Limited." The prequel is called the "Hotel Chevalier," it is a little scandalous, but I really enjoyed it, mostly because I love love love the shots in this movie, The Darjeeling Limited is not opening up here in Idaho Falls, as far as I know. I have my fingers crossed for the friends of film at the Center Twin. Anywho, the hotel Chevalier stars Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman, and it is awkward and awesome. Check it out when you get a chance, but a warning to all those with the tiny adults, it has been rated "explicit" by the iTunes.

I downloaded it that very day.

Natalie is one of my favorites and to see her teamed up with Wes was a dream realized. It is a great and seedy short. you're right, the shots in the film were pure Anderson gold, how the camera would lead first and the actor would walk into the scene, all one take. impressive.
