Now playing.

Wes Anderson kind of keeps making the same movie over and over. But it is a movie I really like.

In his "latest" (it finally arrived in Birmingham on Friday), The Darjeeling Limited, Anderson looks at another fractured family's attempts at reconciliation. As usual, Anderson delivers a fine film. He's five for five (Anderson also directed Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic) -- how many directors can you say that about?

Ebert liked Darjeeling, too. Check out his 3.5 star review. But ignore his remarks about Aquatic, which is still my favorite Anderson flick.

Hey. This is Nabih Iqal, from Sidewalk Salon a few nights back. The movie looks pretty cool from what I see in the production blog. Let me now if you guys accept volunteering because I would be glad to help.
