Critic Reviews of "The Darjeeling Limited"NewsweekMarch 12, 2014
Wes Anderson transports his arch, pristine, melancholic sensibility to India, where three estranged brothers meet after their father's death and hop a train in a quixotic attempt to heal their spiritual wounds.Wall Street JournalMarch 12, 2014
The film as a whole operates in Mr. Anderson's patented, semi-precious zone of antic and droll. It's not as if the filmmaker has gone off the rails. He's just not solidly on them.NPR.orgOctober 18, 2008
Apart from having thus created the first road-picture homework assignment, Anderson isn't breaking new ground here. But he and his actors appear to be having a larkish good time.I.E. WeeklyFebruary 22, 2008
A Wes Anderson film is like a snow globe: it's hermetically sealed, precious, and pointless.Time OutNovember 21, 2007
For all Anderson's pleasing, refreshing auteur tendencies, the overwhelming feeling delivered by 'The Darjeeling Limited' is of frustration, déjà vu and little progression.Miami HeraldOctober 19, 2007
There's never a moment when you're not conscious of the movie's artifice -- its set design is part of its entertainment -- but the experience isn't exactly off-putting, either.News & Observer (Raleigh, NC)October 20, 2015
The Darjeeling Limited isn't Wes Anderson's best, but it shows he is trying his best.Film School RejectsMarch 12, 2014
Wilson shines as the oldest brother of three in perhaps his best performance to date.Toledo BladeMarch 12, 2014
It's very much what I think Anderson intended - a light travelogue of small consequence, with a slight, though sincere and concerned effort to bring a heart back into his films.Uncut Magazine [UK]March 12, 2014
The screenplay does have ambitions to say something about brotherhood and spirituality, but Anderson's sense of style is so strong that sincerity and emotion struggle to be heard.Daily Telegraph (UK)March 12, 2014
What of the characters? Well, there aren't any, really.sbs.com.auMarch 12, 2014
Anderson's gentle parody of westerners who lob into an ancient culture expecting to pick up enlightenment and peace as easily as a shoe shine or over-the-counter painkillers is very funny.
