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.
By now, you know exactly what to expect, which is both good and bad. To my mind, Anderson reached the acme of this formula in the first go, in Tenenbaums, and has now replicated it twice, evoking smaller pleasures each time.
Being faintly disappointed by a new Wes Anderson film -- films whose primary form of emotional address, after all, is faint disappointment -- remains one of the few consistent pleasures of American moviegoing.
As ambiguous and frustrating as it can often be, The Darjeeling Limited is a film of great art and passion; vibrant, charming and poignant, it's a ride you won't want to get off, no matter where it takes you.
Arguably Wes Anderson's most compassionate, mature film, "Darjeeling" dances around disconcerting what-ifs: If they weren't your brothers and sisters, would you voluntarily befriend them, or do you tolerate quirks and annoyances because blood links you?
