I watched this movie for the first time over the weekend and adored it. I think it’s my favorite of Wes Anderson’s after Rushmore. There’s always something nostalgic and slightly melancholy about Anderson’s films. He’s an auteur in every sense of the word, with his own distinct, impressionistic style. The Darjeeling Limited was oddly uplifting and left me with the warm fuzzies when it was over. If you watch it, make sure you watch the version with the short film Hotel Chevalier before the actual movie! It adds so much to the story.
Favorite quote: “I love you too, but I’m gonna mace you in the face!”
