The Darjeeling Limited

The Darjeeling Limited

Have you ever gotten stuck on a long trip with someone who you initially thought was interesting and then they turn out to be incredibly dull and it just won’t end? Wes Anderson’s “The Darjeeling Limited,” people. This pallid tale of white people finding themselves in South Asia features virtually zero speaking parts for actual South Asians (except, briefly, for the fleeting love interest and her disapproving supervisor) and also evinces zero substantive interest in or understanding of the culture from Anderson himself. Actually, if you can slap yourself out of the boredom, it’s pretty offensive.
