The Darjeeling Limited

Today I saw The Darjeeling Limited with my friend Dave, and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Beyond the fact that the short, Hotel Chevalier, was actually included before the feature, the movie itself was outstanding on all fronts.

The acting was quite good with a great subtlety of expressions between the three lead roles. The direction, photography, and writing were what I expect from an Anderson film – far above the average auteur. I particularly resonated with the dysfunctionally fractured relationships between the brothers Whitman, and the touching moments accompanying their emotional healing.

Like most Wes Anderson works, I’d like to see this again that I might fully ingest the cinematic goodies contained therein, but it’s safe for me to say this was 5 out of 5, and I’ll surely purchase the film on DVD when it releases.
