The Darjeeling Limited (2007) – 3/5

The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

Wes Anderson’s power grows. I love the tone/feel of his movies – he’s so consistent in that despite everything else which is impressive.

I think there’s a lot of depth to this movie and wd love to read a good essay on it. But it’s clear these men have all suffered b/c of their parents (and lack of).

UPDATE: I lowered this to 3. As time goes by, I’m digging this movie less. It has a lot of power, but fails to pull it together.


When they save the kids from drowning, it’s very powerful. I’m sure there’s a lot being said about themselves needing to be saved and not all making it. Also, about going to the funeral and the reactions of the people.

Dropping their baggage at the end and letting go to be together is pretty clear.
