Hotel Chevalier.

Of course we love Wes Anderson. If you didn't know this by reading our blog up to now, we don't really know how to make it more clear. The attention to detail, the style, the music. It's all very much him, even if that can be redundant as he "progresses" as a filmmaker.

Whether or not Wes has lived up to the promise of his early films is beside the point for us. The real point is that if you've never seen this short, which relates to Jason Schwartzman's character in The Darjeeling Limited and ran before it in theatres, you're missing out.

We're here to fix that.

There are a number of reasons we love this short:

1. Natalie Portman's ass.
2. Natalie Portman's hair.
3. The Peter Sarstedt song.
4. The balcony.
5. The little details all over the room.
6. It's funny.
7. It's sad.
8. Natalie Portman's ass.

We hope you find similar reasons to enjoy this little gem.


  1. That was utterly delightful. Natalie Portman is so androgynous (re: THE hotness).
    Heartbreakingly sad, in the very best way.

    1. Yes, so well said. We always feel just melancholy enough to take our clothes off and fix it after watching this short.

  2. No other way to fix melancholy, really. Ok, I can think of a bunch of ways actually, but sex is probably healthier than chain smoking.
