Hotel Chevalier: Directed by Wes Anderson. With Jason Schwartzman, Natalie Portman, Waris Ahluwalia, Michel Castejon. A prologue of one heart-breaking history of love and the prologue of the travel told in The Darjeeling Limited (2007).
“Really a beautiful short piece of enticement, with tone and sight and sound and dialogue all letting you know that thereu0026#39;s a story here, while only hinting at the many things that story might be. And it captures a particular feel that lets you in on the situation kind of like a good short story in a book does.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe way the whole thing looks, and the way the action comes across, are pure Wes Anderson at his best. Deadpan. Melancholy. Hurtfully truthful-feeling.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYou know they say there used to be shorts before all the movies when you saw u0026#39;em in the theatre. Now we get a string of commercials bigger, louder, and stupider than on TV. It would be so cool if more top notch film-makers like these made more stuff like this. Viva Short Film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd Thank You Especially, Miss Portman, for getting behind in your work. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYour talent and beauty are in a neck and neck race for first place in many hearts like my own.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;ll be there for u0026quot;Darjeeling Ltdu0026quot; the day it opens.”
