Critic Reviews for The Darjeeling Limited

All Critics (193) | Top Critics (57)

What of the characters? Well, there aren't any, really.

March 12, 2014 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

March 12, 2014

Anderson is evidently encumbered by his own cargo. Louis Vuitton it may be, but the overriding sensation here suggests the endless revolutions of a baggage carousel.

June 18, 2012

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.

Top Critic

A Wes Anderson film is like a snow globe: it's hermetically sealed, precious, and pointless.

Audience Reviews for The Darjeeling Limited


It is painful to see the self-indulgent work that Wes Anderson made here, so pretentious and concerned about style over substance. The visuals are outstanding but the empty story is pointless and tedious, drifting nowhere with unfunny humor and weird seriousness.

I think this may be the most beautifully photographed of all of Anderson's classics. The backdrop of India is amazing and the score featuring the songs of The Kinks is brilliant.

My favorite Wes Anderson film by virtue of the three brothers' love-hate, instinctive, irrational relationship.
