The Darjeeling Limited

       **** out of ****

       I first watched Wes Anderson’s “The Darjeeling Limited” about two-to-three years ago. It was my first film in terms of the writer-director-auteur, and it wasn’t exactly a warm welcome to his wonderful world. I found it dry, sporadically funny and sometimes amusing, but nonetheless hollow at its core. It was lacking in both sincerity and depth for me. Then I saw “Rushmore”, “The Royal Tenenbaums”, “Bottle Rocket”, “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou”, and when it released, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”. Then I revisited “Darjeeling”. And I say that in a more literal sense than you may think.

     The full review.
