THE DARJEELING LIMITED
DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 91 minutes, short prequel film, original theatrical trailer, featurette
VIDEO: 2.35:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)
AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Digital
Subtitles: English, Spanish

STUDIOS: Fox Searchlight/ Scott Rudin Productions
RELEASE DATE: 2-26-2008

Director Wes Anderson got my attention with his previous film THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU. His current film THE DARJEELING LIMITED follows the same zany style. The film follows three brothers (who haven't talked to each other for a year since their dad's funeral) who take a spiritual journey across India that takes unexpected turns. THE DARJEELING UNLIMITED is about teh unexpected as teh brothers learn to trust each other again as they first try to keep things from each other. Their fighting between each other leads to new turns in their adventure. One brother (Owen Wilson) finally reveals why he wanted the other two there. The family is screwed up whether it is a brother or the mother (who decided not to come to their mother's funeral). Their adventures in India ends up be rewarding and it touches many people in the end. The music and cinematography gives the film beauty. THE DARJEELING LIMITED is an interesting alternative if you're looking for something a little different to watch instead of the usual.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
You can play the film with or without the short prelude film called Part 1- THE HOTEL CHAVEILER.

THE DARJEELING LIMITED BEHIND-THE-SCENES is a very candid making of featurette that looks how the film is made during production and one of the crew give a tour of all the creative work and decisions that went into the train used in the film.

Also included on the disc is the original theatrical trailer and trailers for THE SAVAGES, THE ONION MOVIE, HITMAN, and RESURRECTING THE CHAMP. Too bad the film doesn't have an audio commentary, but the featurette coems close making up for the lack of one.

FINAL ANALYSIS: THE DARJEELING LIMITED is a quirky film that delighted and entertained me.
