Genre: Comedy Drama
Director: Wes Anderson
Starring: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Amara Karan, Wallace Wolodarsky, Waris Ahluwalia, Anjelica HustonIn Brief: Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited (2007) is one of the filmmaker's best works — and a film that flirts with the term "perfect." Complaints that it doesn't "go anywhere" and that it is "twee" (a favorite term of Anderson detractors) seem to miss the point. The film — or the characters (who pretty much are the film) — very clearly ends up in a much different place than it started. That it gets there less by plot than by incident is beside the point. This is a ride well worth taking — full of great sights and sounds and a lot more depth than is often claimed.
A look at what’s been making headlines: The North Carolina General Assembly continued to claim the spotlight last week as Republicans took control of both the House and Senate for the first time in more than a century. In other political news, Rep. Heath Shuler made waves by getting appointed to the powerful House Committee on the Budget. He also got made fun of in the famed Doonesbury comic strip. And in national attention of a different sort, news outlets nationwide reported that Fodors listed Asheville as a top travel destination.
