This is familiar psychological as well as stylistic territory for Anderson after "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums." But there's a startling new maturity in Darjeeling, a compassion for the larger world that busts the confines of the filmmaker's...

This tale of filial love and family baggage is Wes Anderson's most heartfelt feature film yet. Its companion short, "Hotel Chevalier," is darn near perfect.

This rates a full 5 stars on the "Quirkiness Scale." Both the story and characters are odd and interesting. The movie could so easily have been ruined by being the "One Billionth Fish-Out-Water Story." Our characters know enough about their...

Beautiful. Simple. Touching. Wes Anderson has this delicious talent to give us just enough information for us to figure out the bigger picture and the deeper meaning to his stories. This film is beautifully symbolic, and is not over stylized. It...

Wes Anderson's films focus a lot on the connections and relationships that his different characters make during the course of the movie. However, for some reason, with the "Darjeeling Limited" being about family and with the main characters being...

Wes Anderson's schtick has finally run out of steam. His overly-ironic dry dialogue and direction was absolutely great for two or three movies, but now it's just starting to feel hateful toward the audience, and too cynical to keep me in my seat....

Are you looking for wild and crazy action? How about an endless string of laugh out loud gags, does that sound good? No? You want a more mellow and nuanced movie? A movie that will not raise guffaws but instead steadily supply of chuckles is what...

Wow at an hour and 30 mins I couldn't\t bring myself to finish this movie, the comedy seemed so contrived, the drama so stereotypical and thee hardest they tried to push the envelope the worse this film got. This made just plained out bored me,...

Maybe because I've lived in India I appreciate this movie more than some other people might. It is not as laugh-out-loud funny as the Royal Tenenbaums or Rushmore, but there's still a lot of humor there. In the Royal Tenenbaums a narrator gives us...

I've seen all of Wes Anderson movies and while none have blown me away, I have enjoyed all of them. This movie is no different. It isn't terribly exciting, and there is no profound message that I could find in it. The characters are odd, but what...
