Just a quick update for now…
Tea Gschwendner in Chicago is throwing a release party for The Darjeeling Limited, complete with Sitar music, Indian finger foods and darjeeling tea. There will be a $5 cover, although you can get in for free if you can find and bring the ad in the Columbia Chronicle for the event. There will also be raffle prizes which will be given out every 15 minutes (Fox Searchlight Studios is providing a variety of movie goodies to give away). Also, everyone that comes to this party will receive a free ticket to the pre-screening on Oct. 1, at the AMC theater on Illinois St. Dress like your favorite Wes Anderson character.

Men’s Vogue has a great article called “Wonder Boys,” about Owen and Wes. We will post some pictures and text soon.
There are also some new pictures of the new one, which we will also post soon.
A riotously colorful journey . . .
Those who complain about the emotional indirectness of the film, or that
its carefully controlled visual style sterilizes material that would be
better served raw, kind of miss the point. Withholding the prospect of a
direct connection between the viewer and the brothers is evidence of
Anderson’s larger purpose—this movie is as much, if not more, about the
construction of fictions as it is about its ostensible plot.
Last, but certainly not least, The Playlist blog has a great feature called, “If I Were a Wes Anderson Soundtrack.”
Update (9.50 am, September 21): The Louis Vuitton luggage from The Darjeeling Limited is on display at Louis Vuitton on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue through the weekend.
More details soon… !!!
