The Darjeeling Limited

maybe i just notice it more now, since i quit smoking, but damn, smoking in movies really makes me want a cigarette. there is smoking in like, every wes anderson movie.

enough of that. i saw the darleeling limited today. i know, its been out for ages, but not in my tiny metropolis. if you can call it a metropolis.

another thing, as a woman, i feel a little left out in wes anderson's movies, or at the very least, an accessory or after thought. the strongest female characters were in the royal tenenbaums, i suppose, or maybe margaret yang in rushmore.

anyway enough of that. here are my notes from the darjeeling limited. i thought i would just give them to you, and you can make with them what you will. if you like wes anderson movies, go see the darjeeling limited. now read my notes.
