    "I guess I've still got some more healing to do.

    You're getting there, though.

    Anyway, it's definitely going to add a lot of character to you."

    I always feel emotionally devastated after watching this masterpiece of a film.

    Not my favourite Wes Anderson, but I still think it's very underrated in his filmography. It's got a remarkable energy about it, and the characters are very rich without an over reliance on quirk. India lends itself well to Anderson's visual style. I love long train journeys, and this is a good representation - as far as modern 'travel' or 'road' movies go this is one of the best.

    "Thank you for using me"
    Not only would a character only say this deadpan in a Wes Anderson movie, it is only in his films that the character would say it sincerely.

    Kinda liked how the movie seems to play with familial bonds (and perhaps all human connections to a lesser extent), pondering whether they are honest, albeit messy relationships freely entered or some sort of inescapable interpersonal contract that must be fulfilled by regular interaction because that's just what…

    Strangely for a Wes Anderson film, this one finds him and his characters interacting within the real world (the sun-kissed landscape of India with its myriad temples and small villages) rather than examined in the gorgeous, meticulously-detailed dioramas that constitute the majority of his films. The story revolves around three brothers on a quest for spiritual enlightenment in India following the death of their father. It begins on a train (the titular "Darjeeling Limited") which delivers the sort of enclosed,…

    Wes Anderson must be genius choosing that "Aux Champs-Elysées" for the last scene...

    Great Wes Anderson film, one of his best. Not on the same level as Tenanbaums or Life Aquatic, but it would come in right behind those for me.

    I always enjoy seeing a Wes Anderson film for the first time, and this film was no different. This is a beautifully composed film, with a wonderful sense of internal framing. In other words this was a Wes Anderson masterpiece, just like his other films. I can see this film being one that people either love or hate, but I really enjoyed it. The dysfunction of family is something I am all too familiar with so there were some great…

    I was pleasantly surprised to find this among my in-flight entertainment options on my trip home from Spain. It was my only blind spot in Wes Anderson's body of work, so I needed that closure (I've only seen the complete works of two sets of filmmakers: The Coen Bros and Wes Anderson - somehow, this makes me feel like a failure as a cinephile).

    It is definitely a minor work, though. The train setting forces Anderson away from his picture…

    One of the better contained/executed of Anderson's films but also one of the less memorable.
