Movie Review: The Darjeeling Limited

Posted on March 15, 2008

The Darjeeling LimitedThis is a film I have been waiting to see for a while and by waiting I mean I was too busy to check it out in theaters and had to wait for the DVD from Netflix. I was unsure I would like as I assumed it would be a pretentious Wes Anderson film (and had read as much from some reviewers) but I was pleasantly surprised.

The Darjeeling Limited was a great character driven film that had me from the very beginning. Sure, the characters are quirky but the quirks of each really do work to tell the story rather than being random or there solely for comic relief.

Throughout the film the main characters, three brothers, try to shed the baggage their deceased father left behind (both literally and figuratively) and, just when they think their trip is a bust, they are put in a situation that shows the best in humanity and in themselves.

I highly recommend The Darjeeling Limited and it is especially good for those that enjoy a good dark comedy. Check it out and and let me know what you think in the comments.

    I absolutely loved this movie (then again I love anything by Wes Andeson, it must be the Houston connection). What I love about Anderson movies is that he doesn’t take the time to expain how or why characters are a certain way, he just puts them on display and allow their actions to speak for themselves.
