Fifth about The Seventh

The Darjeeling Limited

The Darjeeling Limited: touching little story with nice, well-defined brooding characters. It’s hidden in the typical Anderson aesthetics: precise, stylized visuals, subdued acting, strong use of music. It’s an acquired taste; his style may be distracting. However, I can’t help but marvel at his use of dolly shots; whip pans, tilts and booms; slow motion. It all fits, showing a world that both is and isn’t quite like our own.
