    The Darjeeling Limited is amongst Wes Anderson's prettiest creations, despite not being a perfect outing. There's more that works than doesn't work, though. It has a whole lot of heart. The cinematography is gorgeous, thanks in part to some beautiful on-location shooting. It has a nice balance between drama and snippy humor. The casting and performances, of course, are perfect.

    Due to the film's sprawling nature, however, it can easily get lost in itself at the sacrifice of better storytelling.…

    The Darjeeling Limited felt like a mature Anderson film. The artificial pastels and decor are gone, replaced with a beautiful cultural India. Anderson again plays with framing and blocking. I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

    I love the feeling Wes Anderson's film give me; that relationships of all kinds are very complex and hard, but that people can still have an undying love for one another and an acceptance of differences. They're really about just getting along.

    Still feels like Anderson's most personal film, like he and his collaborators got a lot off their chest in making it. As someone who has a brother and a sister, I totally buy into the dynamics of being the oldest, the middle and the youngest sibling, and these three guys really play off each other beautifully in that regard. In retrospect, Darjeeling really feels like the turning point for Wes, where his melancholic tendencies hit their natural end point and…

    Probably the most under-appreciated film in Wes Anderson's body of work.

    It's always fun to unearth new tidbits on a rewatch.

    Then there is Owen Wilson stepping up to the plate again, getting a refresher course far away from his frequent Hollywood comedy trappings, and channeling Dignan again.

    This movie was beautiful. Being only my second Wes Anderson film and my first live-action Wes Anderson, I was blown away. The use of colors and angles felt unique and fresh. The story and characters, however, felt like they were lacking a bit. They either just bugged me or I didn't care about them a lot. There were definitely some super funny moments/lines in this movie that made me laugh out loud, but there were only a few. Overall, for…

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

    So much symbolism. The script of this film should be used in grade schools for figurative literature exams. Undoubtedly the nicest looking Wes Anderson picture before The Grand Budapest Hotel featuring quite an interesting family. Their spiritual journey did indeed bring them closer together, I just wish there was something more here. The very few pieces we put together, although charming and satisfying, shouldn't justify an end (or beginning) to their…

    Continuing to finish Anderson's ouevre, I finally checked out DL. Have to say, the colors are beautiful and there is some wonderful photography. The three leads fill their roles admirably. I find that it drags a bit, yet it picks up in its final act. I wouldn't say its Anderson's finest effort, but it has a certain charm to it.

    Dirigido por Wes Anderson e escrito pelo mesmo em parceria com Romam Copola, The Darjeeling Limited conta a história de 3 irmãos que após terem o pai morto, decidem embarcar uma viagem pela Índia afim de explorarem sua espiritualidade e se livrarem dos pesadelos que os assombram e que fizeram com que cada seguisse sua vida sem laços familiares.

    Por ser um filme rodado na Índia, a fotografia do filme é um pouco diferente dos outros filme de Wes Anderson,…

    Despite my long standing (and aforementioned) difficulties with the work of Wes Anderson, the allure of last year's The Grand Budapest Hotel prompted me to record a Channel 4 screening of The Darjeeling Limited. Whilst it's fair to say that my appreciation of Anderson is growing with each viewing, I cannot honestly say that I think this offbeat comedy is without its flaws. The story, in short, focuses on three brothers embarking on a train ride through India in the…
