The Darjeeling Limited
I must begin by saying that I'm pretty surprised by how much I enjoyed The Darjeeling Limited. I've always been a little underwhelmed by Wes Anderson's work, often a little too quirky for me. This road trip tale of three brothers (who really don't get along very well), on a train in India, charmed me. Their personalities cracked me up, the quest was interesting and evolved. There was drama, a touch of romance and several twists and reveals. Visually, this film is a treat. Color, detail, gags, scenery, I was impressed. If the rumors are true about the short film Hotel Chevalier being shown before this at screenings starting this week, I may go see it again!
