Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Adrien Brody all star in the new Wes Anderson film "The Darjeeling limited" and that's about it, that's all I needed to know anyway, three amazingly attractive men (who are also good actors) wandering around India on a quest to reconnect again (and find their mother Angelica Heuston).
Now I love "The Royal Tennenbaums", it is up there in my five favorite movies, I watch it about every six months when I really need to be delighted, so I was excited to see this movie, it was excellent, really well told, India looks beautiful, they capture something very natural in it (maybe that's the wobbly cine cameras, makes you feel like you are on the train too.
But for me the best thing were the men, as a woman there are very few films that have three interesting men to look at, All on the screen at the same time (and apart from a few supporting roles) there weren't very many women (there is a nude Natalie Portman guys if you are interested....I'm sorry to say this but Jesus she is too skinny!) So I just sat back and watched the guys act, there were a lot of close up shots and I began to think about men and what makes them attractive?
All three actors are very attractive men, none of them are what you'd call conventionally handsome though.. For all of Owen Wilson's American cowboy goods looks (those full lips...wow) he has kinda piggy eyes, Jason Schwartzman is probably the most conventionally attractive, but he is short for a man, Adrien Brody has those eyes you could lose yourself in, but looks very bird like. So I was wondering what it is that makes men attractive as opposed to women?
(Male) Scientists have done research into what makes supermodels just so sexy, the proportions of the eyes, the angle of the nose but do those same things apply to men? Personally I don't think they do, men are far more visual than women, what titillates the is the outer packaging, I'm not sure now but we could try an experiment here now, if you like? Close your eyes and relax, then think of someone of the opposite sex that you like (and know, no Brads or Kylies please) and see what happens when you think of them, what comes into your mind? If you are a guy is is an image and if you are a girl what do you see? I always see peoples eyes when I think of them...that's I think the closest part of our bodies to our "true selves", over the years bodies change but your eyes don't!
Thanks for indulging me, and let me know if you have nay funny results
