The Madra Mór Weekend Watchlist Issue #9 - We've gone quirky!
Every week we will be listing a great film, TV show and short film that we love and we think you will too. Time to put the feet up, crack open a beverage and enjoy.
THE MOVIE: The Darjeeling Limited
Perhaps a controversial choice. I have yet to meet someone who has chosen this as their favourite Wes Anderson film but I absolutely love this film. Form the opening cameo to the three central cast members (Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody & Jason Schwartzman) to the energy of the location that Wes Anderson captures so well. It has it all.
THE TV SHOW: Fleabag
Adapted from the stage and bringing along all the stage techniques along with it (breaking the fourth wall etc), Fleabag is a brilliantly funny show. Excellently written, fantastic performances, clever story lines. Only two seasons so get stuck in.
THE SHORT FILM: Hotel Cavalier
A short film prequel to The Darjeeling Limited. I love that the film has this attached. And Natalie Portman! I mean come on. If The Darjeeling Limited is not your favourite Wes Anderson film at this point, then I have no more to give...
Have a great weekend.
