Please tell me you have at least 13 minutes to spare? Because you're going to want to use all of that time to watch Wes Anderson's short titled Hotel Chevalier for free, online, right now. It stars Natalie Portman (in the nude) and Jason Schwartzman and is "Part I" of The Darjeeling Limited. Film buffs will automatically recognize Wes Anderson's name, but in case you don't, here's a reminder: he wrote and directed Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. In a couple of weeks his next film, The Darjeeling Limited, will hit theaters and this is the short that he directed to precede it.
All you've got to do to watch Hotel Chevalier is fire up iTunes (and install it if you don't already have it), then click this link. It will open up in iTunes and allow you to click on "Get Video" to download it. That's it, easy and 100% free! Again - all you need to do to watch it is visit this link!
Make sure you also go watch the trailer for The Darjeeling Limited and see it in theaters starting on September 28th! I have yet to see this film but I've heard from a few people that it lives up to everything else Wes Anderson has done. I'm truly excited for a brave and adventurous indie film, as there hasn't been one that great since Sundance in January.
DAMN you Alex. I clicked on this article hoping you posted the video. Tried for like an hour last night to get a itunes account but it wouldnt let me. Guess i gotta try again when i get home. Do a torrent search and hopefully someone posted it.

For all you readers in the UK, like myself, this video is not available through the iTunes Store unless you have an American account. Apple are just mean and don't want us to see Natalie Portman nude.

The link I posted in my previous comment apparently doesn't contain the entire short. See the entire thing on Google Video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1778242572589237349&hl=en
