Blunt Reviews Presents: The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

the-darjeeling-limited-3

As much as I love Wes Anderson as a filmmaker, this wasn’t quite as good as I had hoped. It starts as a pastiche of American philosophical tourism, which is subversive and genuinely quite funny, but the second half of the film seems to slip into the very thing it originally set out to mock, which is a shame. It still has a certain level of charm and there is much to like about it, but personally I got more from the short film that precedes the main picture, entitled Hotel Chevalier, which held a lot more substance.

  1. Actually one of my greater favourites, and I cannot explain why. I guess I just really like the journey, and finding of some closure. And of course there is Anjelica Huston who’s been my Queen since the Witches. Overall, lovely reviews, really enjoy this page.
