    This was really enjoyable. I know I over-rate Anderson films but it's because I highly enjoy both his visual sensibility and the quirky style of humanistic humour that's pervasive in his work. I also greatly admire Adrien Brody's acting--so taken together, even though this isn't considered one of his better efforts, it was 4.5/5 or 9/10 for me.

    While it doesn't hold up to The Royal Tenenbaums, in my opinion, The Darjeeling Limited is a really good movie. Once again, Anderson's characters seem realistic. I think the Tenenbaums is my fave, by him, but I would gladly watch this one again.

    A movie named like this and all they drink is one lousy cup of tea at the airport and one in a train???? One word came to mind throughout the movie:tripping! Should have known, since Schwartzman was in it.

    There is a word that has been lurking in my mind while watching a few of Wes Anderson’s movies. The clearest examples is The Lief Aquatic With Steve Zissou. For the first half, it’s tame. And I don’t mean superficial. I’ve seen this charge levied at Wes Anderson, but I disagree with it. I think he does a wonderful job of fleshing out his characters and his stories, although he does so in very original ways.

    By tame, I instead…

    Sehr schön (wie praktisch alles des Herrn Anderson), aber teilweise etwas holprig im Ton. Das macht es zu Beginn schwer, in den Film einzutauchen, doch ist man einmal im Fluss, will man kaum mehr hinaus. O. k., das ist Nörgeln auf hohem Niveau, aber Andersons andere Werke gefielen mir halt besser. Basta.

    I forgot to add this movie. I should just add all of the Wes Anderson movies I've seen, since I've seen a lot of them. This one's really pleasant. Nice to look at, well-realized in its eccentricities in acting and cinematography. Anderson's stuff is good in a different way, and it kind of has to be evaluated in a different way. Really appeals to that Indiaphile aesthetic that people like my mother have.

    Thanks mom.

    I love that we jump straight into the "action" we don't see how these three brothers left their current homes to get on this train in India. We are just right there. Very smart choice. I also love that you really feel like you're on the train with our main characters. Perhaps looking into their cabin from your own?

    The plot is rather straight forward, but I believe the message is the most important part you're suppose to take from…

    The Darjeeling Limited is the final film I needed to see to complete Wes Anderson’s filmography. I don’t know if there is a filmmaker with a more noticeable style. I can maybe understand if people want to see him go in a different direction with the look of his films, but I say stick with it.

    The film starts with Bill Murray running for and missing a train. We never see him again. This was just brilliant. To make me…

    The Darjeeling Limited has me eating my words about Wes Anderson. Before yesterday, I had seen all of his films except for this one—partly because my area's library system only owned one copy (and someone never bothered to return it), and partly because I've heard most people say it was their least favorite Anderson film.

    Maybe I liked it as much as I did because it reminded me of a trip I took to India in college (one that represents…
