A typical Anderson film with his trademark style and the usual cast of characters. I love Anderson, but this one just didn't seem to have what his other great films (Rushmore, Life Aquatic, Moonrise, Budapest) did. Those films made you care about the characters. Quite honestly everyone in this film is detestable except for the villagers. They're the heart of the film. If you like Anderson, you're going to at least like this film, you might even love it. All of his tropes are here. If you don't like Anderson, may I try and convert you by telling you to see Moonrise Kingdom or Rushmore first. Anderson is one of the greatest working directors today.

Although it doesn't reach the depth of human emotion that Tenenbaums or Rushmore does, Darjeeling Limited is a welcome addition for those who love Anderson's quirky and colorful style (I do.) The deadpan humor and spot-on casting makes for a light-hearted (mostly) and enjoyable experience, though not the deepest.

Entertaining in the way that only Wes Anderson's films are. Neither the worst or best of the director's work, but at least it's consistent. I found it pleasing and chuckled throughout.

Deadpan humor and Wes Anderson-isms.

There's something awkwardly comfortable about Wes Anderson's movies, isn't there?
His style is so quirky and upbeat. From his long, gliding shots to slow-motion sequences, Anderson creates a mood of a world that's parallel to ours. Certain things are emphasized, colors are separated from one another and the framework is magnificent. All of these factors were present in The Darjeeling Limited.

The movie is so wonderfully weird, it's fascinating how randomly everything happens.
All the events kind of just fall into the movie, so that's a definite point for ingenuity.
From the start, we are put directly in our actors' presence and witness them throwing great dialogue back and forth.
The storyline is at first quite confusing, but the way I understood it from the beginning, was a reunio...

"The Darjeeling Limited" by Yojimbo

Three estranged brothers go on a voyage of self discovery in India to reconcile after the death of their father. I've never really "got" Wes Anderson; maybe it's a cultural thing, but his films have always left me a little cold. The Darjeeling limited is another example, although his talent for pleasing visuals is in full effect once more and beautiful landscapes embellished with a palette of vibrant colours means it's always easy on the eye. But once more I couldn't help the feeling that scratching the surface of his work reveals yet more surface. The two-part format felt a little bullshitty and I didn't connect with any of the characters at all. It didn't make me laugh, it didn't make me cry, it didn't make me feel anything; it's just kind of there. In the end The Darjeeling limited in ...

I had very low expectations coming into this movie but I was still disappointed. With a running time of an hour and thirty minutes, it felt longer than "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. I really enjoyed "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" so I am not completely a Wes Anderson hater. But I did not like "Bottle Rocket" and "The Aquatic Life of Steve Zissou" in any level, which made me question Anderson's film-making ability. I wonder if he has crossed the line between originality and pretentiousness. In this film, there were barely any genuine laugh; I actually had to force myself to laugh at every little "chuckle" moments because I was so bored. Things did get a little bit better when Angelica Houston appeared on screen. There's something about her presence and eloquence that's deeply fas...
