i don't think wes has ever accomodated his style to fit the setting of his films. if anything his trademark style allows him to shoot anything quite easily without consideration to where it is. visionary directors like him find their biggest challenge in different genres, or to be precise in the dissolution thereof. by incorporating their style to the limitations set by pace requirements and different thematic tones.. the most exciting parts of Life Aquatic were not when he departed from his "look" -- which is impossible for him i think because it includes costumes, set decoration, and all that stuff -- but when he pursued a different film altogether than that which he has done before.
compare Fernando Meirelles, what would appear as insurmountable weight of style and visual flare in City of God was done away with in Constant Gardener. GT called this a departure from genre in his style, mostly i agree in that the fault and blessing was his marriage to the material and expansion of all the themes in the story by stripping down his own style and using what was necessary to sell it. it's still markedly a meirelles film. ultimately wes feels like the kinda guy who will make the same movie no matter what. so yeah i hope he does try new things in india, if the mere fact of being in india is not sufficient novelty.
he remains true to scorsese's own appointment of him as his successor, and in the same way scorsese has not disappointed when telling the same story in many different guises, i can't say i'm tired of wes' story yet.
