    Gets better with each rewatch. Definitely the case where it is not the destination so much as the journey that satifies.

    To be honest, I didn't expect to like this film. Of all of Wes Anderson's works, it seems to be one of the very few (if not the only one) without some sort of devout following. There's an Anderson film for everyone - be it The Life Aquatic, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore, or The Royal Tenenbaums, someone claims it as one of their favourites.

    ...except The Darjeeling Limited.

    Darjeeling features all of Anderson's typical motifs - strained sibling relationships, bizarrely obsessive…

    Three brothers in crisis meet in India and in desperation, in "The Darjeeling Limited," a movie that meanders so persuasively it gets us meandering right along. It's the new film by Wes Anderson, who after "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" made "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". Of that peculiar film I wrote: "My rational mind informs me that this movie doesn't work. Yet I hear a subversive whisper: Since it does so many other things, does it have to…

    Throughout our lives all of us experience a reunion of some sort. Typically someone organizes the event and it’s held at a nice venue. Everyone dresses up for an evening of fun while old stories are evoked. At the conclusion pleasantries are exchanged but rarely do you see or hear from those participants again.
    In The Darjeeling Limited we witness the reunion of three brothers: Francis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartzman, who also co-wrote). This reunion…

    Another Wes Anderson movie, this time the tale of 3 brothers including Anderson regulars Owen Wilson(Francis) & Jason Schwartzman (Jack) and Adrien Brody as Peter who are travelling across India in the train of the title. Although it isn't obvious from the outset the brothers are on a personal pilgrimage to find their mother. The brothers, each with their own back story and clear suspicions about each other play off each other fairly well. The only problem with the movie is…

    The Darjeeling Limited was released in 2007 and was Anderson's fifth film. The film tells the simple but beautiful story of three brothers who travel across India by train in an attempt to bond with each other a year after the death of their father. This is a film that has had fairly mixed reactions. Some people adore it, others find it to be just average. I actually really enjoy this one though, probably because Anderson's style is all over…

    Yeah I though this was just an okay film. It not wes Anderson strangest film. It also one of those films where I was kinda wanting it to be over but it was still going on.

    This story about three brothers embarking on a spiritual trip to reconnect with themselves (and one another) packs a lot more punch than you'd imagine. It's very rare that a film is able to make me laugh very hard, and then instantly make me feel upset. It's sharply written (although the jokes don't come as heavy as his previous efforts), and it seems as if his style, ever-present in the form of interestingly framed wide-shots and zooms, has matured over the years. Wonderfully poignant film.

    The thing that gets me about this one is that it is darker, less whimsical.

    Owen Wilson is awesome in this. Another visually stunning film by Wes Anderson. The plot doesn't really go in any direction but besides that this film is amazing
