darjeeling.jpgI hate to get serious for a moment, but I went to see The Darjeeling Limited and there is really nothing funny to say about it so I have to get serious. I’m a big fan of Wes Anderson, but I don’t know how to place this movie in my Wes Anderson cosmology. I’m not the only one, check out A.O. Scott’s sort of endorsement:

“This shaggy-dog road trip, in which three semi-estranged brothers travel by rail across India, is unstintingly fussy, vain and self-regarding. But it is also a treasure: an odd, flawed, but nonetheless beautifully handmade object as apt to win affection as to provoke annoyance. You might say that it has sentimental value.”

Here are how I rank Wes Anderson’s movies:

Life Aquatic
The Royal Tennenbaums
The Darjeeling Limited
Bottle Rocket
