    Es en muchos sentidos la más floja (después de Bottle Rocket) de Anderson, pero también es la más humana, la que menos parece una serie de dibujos animados, la más emocional y la mejor escrita.

    (El bluray me costó 3 euros en el Cash Converters y soy muy feliz)

    Jack: "What did he say?"

    Peter: "He said the train is lost."

    Jack: "How can a train be lost? It's on rails."


    After taking a break from Wes Anderson, I decided to finish off his filmography. His fifth film, The Darjeeling Limited was next in line. It stars Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, and Owen Wilson as three brothers who embark on a trip together after years apart. I'm not a fan of Wes Anderson, but this is one of the…

    Wes Anderson is a great director who can craft some terrific films, and he is a favorite of mine, however like every other director, he can usually run out of steam a little bit. This film is not awful, but it seems to thread familiar ground like a few of his previous works, and in that regard, the film is a bit disappointing. I view it as a decent affair from Anderson, and he would later make far superior films…

    Wes Anderson is one of those directors whom, after every movie I see of his, I start to think 'why do I not just mammothly splurge on his work?'

    I've no idea why it has taken me 7 years to see this movie, or why I still have gaps in my Anderson viewing. The Royal Tenenbaums is, for my money, one of the funniest and freshest comic movies of the last 15 years and yet I never deliberately seek his…

    I imagine the early drafts of most Wes Anderson movies look something like this. The progression from Tenenbaums to this almost feels like Anderson trying to see how little context he can give for his messy narratives of free-floating pain and sadness. Here he gives us so little context about the three brothers' pasts and pain that it's almost like he expects us to just fill in the blanks with the opening of The Royal Tenenbaums. Everything in this movie…

    This is my personal favorite Wes Anderson film. It's one of those films with a sort of "inspirational" or even "spiritual" journey, but it's done quite tastefully. It's not cheesy or cliche or too mushy. It's a good balance, and I like that the movie isn't centered around any certain romantic entanglement, though there are certain romantic encounters here and there. Plus though the movie is meant to deal with heavier issues, there's a good sprinkle of humor that shines…

    This may sound bad (but I promise it's just an observation): This is probably my least favorite Wes Anderson movie. With that being said, I really enjoyed this.

    Not my favorite Wes Anderson film that would go to Fantastic Mr. Fox or The Grand Budapest Hotel. It didn't put me to sleep so that's got to be saying something. The soundtrack has The Rolling Stones "Play With Fire" which excited me.

    It's always a joy to see another Wes Anderson movie. THE DARJEELING LIMITED contains his typically stunning visuals and quirky cast with hints of drama, well maybe more drama than most of his films. This is simply a good story with good characters well-told.

    Filming on location in India and the Indian influenced soundtrack with hints of Satyajit Ray's style thrown in make for a nice change from Wes Anderson's other outings.

    It's not one of Anderson's best as it doesn't have much impact, but it's certainly worth seeing.

    Film #5 in my “Weekly Wes on Wednesdays” series

    I believe this is the third time I have seen The Darjeeling Limited. The first was shortly after it came out in 2007/2008. I was younger then, and frankly, still stupid and had no appreciation for the film. The second time was as I grew older and purchased the Criterion blu-ray shortly after it was released (a couple years ago if I recall). I did come to appreciate the film more,…

    I thought the movie had a distinct tone, characteristic of wes anderson's films. I thought the cinematography was interesting, the scenery was captivating, and it was very well acted
