Critic Reviews for The Darjeeling Limited
Wes Anderson transports his arch, pristine, melancholic sensibility to India, where three estranged brothers meet after their father's death and hop a train in a quixotic attempt to heal their spiritual wounds.
The film as a whole operates in Mr. Anderson's patented, semi-precious zone of antic and droll. It's not as if the filmmaker has gone off the rails. He's just not solidly on them.
Apart from having thus created the first road-picture homework assignment, Anderson isn't breaking new ground here. But he and his actors appear to be having a larkish good time.
A Wes Anderson film is like a snow globe: it's hermetically sealed, precious, and pointless.
For all Anderson's pleasing, refreshing auteur tendencies, the overwhelming feeling delivered by 'The Darjeeling Limited' is of frustration, déjà vu and little progression.
There's never a moment when you're not conscious of the movie's artifice -- its set design is part of its entertainment -- but the experience isn't exactly off-putting, either.
Audience Reviews for The Darjeeling Limited
It is painful to see the self-indulgent work that Wes Anderson made here, so pretentious and concerned about style over substance. The visuals are outstanding but the empty story is pointless and tedious, drifting nowhere with unfunny humor and weird seriousness.
I think this may be the most beautifully photographed of all of Anderson's classics. The backdrop of India is amazing and the score featuring the songs of The Kinks is brilliant.
My favorite Wes Anderson film by virtue of the three brothers' love-hate, instinctive, irrational relationship.
