this trailer is so great. i'm officially obsessed. like counting down the days obsessed. not to mention steve coogan makes a guest appearance. god, life is good.
i saw the darjeeling limited on saturday night. it was a great way to spend a jet lagged saturday evening w/ my san franciscan buddies. i totally recommend it. it's bit long, but the boys make it all worth while. and as always wes anderson delivers w/ great little visual surprises and an awesome sound track.
i always love the previews before the movie, although recently...has anyone noticed that there are commercials and tv shows in some of the major theatres in their previews? what is up w/ that? anyway...i was so excited to see the preview for CONTROL, a film about ian curtis from joy divison. it looks soooooo good. one of the very first lp singles that i bought was joy division's love will tear us apart, when i was 15. who doesn't have a ton of memories associated w/ that song? it totally brings me back. i know that often all the right editing can make a preview of a film look amazing...but i have to say that i was almost more thrilled by watching the three minute trailer than the entire film i went to see. i'm not hating on the darjeeling limited, it was great. but watching CONTROL and hearing the music conjured up so many memories for me. i also felt bittersweet knowing that just sitting in that theatre w/ my friends was creating more memories as my move back east creeps closer.
i can't wait.
