I love you too, but I'm gonna mace you in the face!

Days go by quite quickly when they are spent in movie theaters.

Indeed, I was out of the apartment from 1:30pm until 8:30pm. Part of that was drive time and there was an hour between when one ended and the other began, but still.

I did see The Darjeeling Limited, which I found enjoyable and engaging. I really like Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman is just awesome. I recommended it. The companion short film, Hotel Chevalier with Schwartzman and Natalie Portman, is available for free from iTunes (accessible through www.hotelchevalier.com). Director Wes Anderson recommends watching it before seeing The Darjeeling Limited.

I also saw Lust, Caution and the jury's still out. It was a very typical narrative, not overly dramatic nor a sweeping epic, really. It was long to be sure (2 hours, 37 minutes), and felt it at times. I was also disappointed in the ending, and I have yet to come up with a satisfactory explanation for that. That said, it was a captivating story with very interesting characters whose actions left me thinking. It was certainly well acted and well directed.


Also, I find it funny that I was carded buying a ticket for The Darjeeling Limited (apparently I look 16?), but not for Lust, Caution, which is rated NC-17. Then again...it's the Regal versus the Enzian.
