The Darjeeling Limited

I have some photos to post but haven't had the chance to transfer them to the computer (still dealing with a slow system), and my daughter Val is home for a visit, so this will be brief.

We just watched The Darjeeling Limited/Hotel Chevalier. Bizarre, very bizarre. But the soundtrack is great and the photography is fabulous! It's worth seeing the movie to take in the colors and the beautiful photo styling. Absolutely gorgeous! It's drenched with light and color, and has a look that I don't know how to describe. Most scenes would work as still photos. The film has a crisp, clear quality. Visually, it was a real treat and I just wanted to alert all of you who love saturated color and clean design.

You can see a trailer here, but it doesn't really capture what entranced me about the look of the film.

I just recently saw that film. I found that you have to get to the very end to "get it." But not the great film they thought that they were making, though.
