Clearly, you either like Wes Anderson or you don’t. Half the people I’ve spoken with about his new film, The Darjeeling Limited praise it, while the others dismiss it as too quirky, too “affected” (as one friend complained to me tonight). Exactly!
I realized today, while watching the film at a New York Film Festival press and industry screening, that I just really enjoy his cinematic worlds: the look, the talk, the music. It works for me. So, I thoroughly loved traveling across the desert of India on his train.
