The Darjeeling Limited Reviews

October 26, 2007
Wes Anderson's movies are hothouse flowers, delicate but vivid blooming, fragrant but short-lived.
Full Review | Original Score: 84/100
October 5, 2007
An easy movie to admire but more difficult to like. Technically and thematically, there's a lot in The Darjeeling Limited to arrest the attention. Emotionally, there's a void.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
September 28, 2007
It's time Wes Anderson moved beyond the mixture of damage and quirky creativity neglectful parents can cause.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Wes Anderson manages to make the exotic Indian countryside seem like a suburb of Houston.
August 27, 2009
The melancholy is mostly notional and entirely unearned, bought ready-made in '60s songs
October 19, 2007
It's an affected film about disaffected people, and no cast in the world could save it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 20, 2007
The ingredients that have increasingly defined Wes Anderson's films seem, with The Darjeeling Limited, to have become something like limitations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It's a movie about luggage.

At a stage in [Wes] Anderson's career when he should be moving on, he is instead circling back.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 28, 2007
"The Darjeeling Limited" is a dud where even its lame attempts at slapstick comedy fall flat.

October 12, 2007
The Darjeeling Limited, the latest self-satisfied exercise in style over substance from writer-director Wes Anderson, will amuse his cult followers -- as well as Anderson himself and his pals, of course -- but probably nobody else.
February 28, 2008
Anderson's films have been a series of diminishing returns after the delightful Rushmore. The Darjeeling Limited is easy to admire but hard to like.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

What of the characters? Well, there aren't any, really.
October 6, 2007
The Darjeeling Limited is like an artist attempting to play back the exact same song, note for note. It's almost always better the first time.
November 21, 2007
For all Anderson's pleasing, refreshing auteur tendencies, the overwhelming feeling delivered by 'The Darjeeling Limited' is of frustration, déjà vu and little progression.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 8, 2007
The evidence of talent persists in Anderson's work, but the prognosis of terminal solipsism and emotional dilettantism draws ever fuller support.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 4, 2007
Limited is exactly what Wes Anderson proves himself to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 6, 2007
[The film] has a kooky, laid back charm and is full of Anderson's trademark themes and surreal eye candy, but ultimately, for all its offbeat wit and road-to-enlightenment send-ups, it feels a little thin.
October 17, 2007
For all its quixotic quirkiness, "The Darjeeling Limited" is little more than artifice for the art house set.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
