How many times, so far, have you watched Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited trailer? I think here at the A.D. home offices we are up to around, oh, ten, give or take a few. Back in 2005 Wes Anderson was the first filmmaker profiled in our (presently on hiatus) series A Soundtrack Enthusiast. For those […]
