Barry Ronge quote iconLike it' characters, this film is a mess. But if you have the patience for it, a lot of it is great.

24.com
Ivan Sadler quote iconIf you're familiar with the director, this should give you a good idea of what to expect. If you aren't, expect something slow, intricate, amusing and true to life, while being so out there it can make your head spin.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMy reaction to The Darjeeling Limited is much the same as for most of Wes Anderson's previous efforts: it's an easy movie to admire but more difficult to like.

quote iconFor the casual viewer who stumbles across this film while channel surfing, it will all too quickly become apparent that this trip on The Darjeeling Limited is a boring excursion to nowhere.
