live blog review of the darjeeling limited

basically just watching this to see more of jason schwartzmann
adrien brody looks like what i think my dad looks like
owen wilson seems like a jerk
want to go to india, mostly for the food
feel suspicious about how these three bros are wearing heavy seeming fabrics
wanna have a tryst with jason s in a train bathroom
musing about brotherly dynamics
seems chill to go on a train journey
this movie is perpetuating my feeling that americans frequently binge on prescription drugs
feels amazing to see these 3 bros in the countryside in india, like who are they irl, esp via the part where jason schwartzmann goes 'would we be friends in real life, if we weren't brothers' seems like a good question to think about
family is weird and interesting
keep expecting bill murray to turn up again, seems unlikely he was only in the first 5 mins
feel like all 3 looked better in india apart from maybe j-schwartz who looks the best of all time
not sure what adrien brody's character is going through yet, want to identify with him though
these people in the village seem beautiful and well adjusted despite that little boy dying, wonder what it would be like for that to be the way of life
why do they all have the same luggage
owen wilson's micromanaging and planning down to the minute reminds me of fraser, almost being overbearing in the most affectionate way
these men seem believably blood related
feel frustrated with this movie becuase the things i perceive to be interesting (man eating tiger, why the girl wanted to get off the train, why jack takes the ipod dock around with him, why francis has a PA, how his shoes cost $3000.) are not elaborated on
oh hello montage
being an actor seems so weird, having to do things with your body and have people tell you what to do with it
also francis seems like fraser via 'let's go get a drink and smoke a cigarette'


  1. being an actor seems like the most bizarre thing to me, also j schwartzmann dmw
    a brody, decidedly not so
    o wilson, no opinion

  2. ^^what is DMW?

    i actually watched this film mostly for adrien brody, partly for wes anderson.

    1. idk it wasn't really that good of a wes anderson flick. have you seen gentleman broncos? not by wes but seems like something you would get into. i don't know about adrien brody. he seems elegant. or sort of other worldly. hmm

    2. I wish I liked wes anderson films more because they are so beautiful. I really enjoyed Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Royal Tennenbaums. Adrien Brody is a really gorgeous in my eyes. He's a pretty legit actor. He was really good in The Jacket (Daniel craig was also amazing in it).
