Ep 21: The Darjeeling Limited


Even though Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel didn’t win big at the Oscars (you’ll notice we recorded the episode before the show, thereby sounding woefully out of touch), Nate and Ryan were still glad to rewatch Anderson’s 2007 film The Darjeeling Limited.  Even among ardent Wes Anderson fans, The Darjeeling Limited seems to be a forgotten film in his career.  Nate and Ryan explore why this movie fell by the wayside, and discuss whether it should be forgotten or given another chance.

As always, let us know your thoughts.  Have you rewatched The Darjeeling Limited? What are your memories of it?  Has Anderson’s aesthetic become tired?

Here’s the video by Matt Zoller Seitz we discuss in the episode.
