samskivert: The Darjeeling Limited (3)

28 October 2007

I’m probably echoing half the moviegoing world in saying that this is Anderson’s best film since Rushmore, but I claim originality, if not primacy. Too frequently Anderson’s characters’ eccentricities overshadow the credibility of his drama, but in Darjeeling, he manages to deftly walk the line and create an emotionally engaging story punctuated by his charmingly bizarre humor.
