Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Wes Anderson transports his arch, pristine, melancholic sensibility to India, where three estranged brothers meet after their father's death and hop a train in a quixotic attempt to heal their spiritual wounds.
Rotten: The film as a whole operates in Mr. Anderson's patented, semi-precious zone of antic and droll. It's not as if the filmmaker has gone off the rails. He's just not solidly on them.
Fresh: The whimsy of it all does a passable job of covering the dull stretches, and the actors, to a one (Bill Murray has a cameo, Anjelica Huston shows up) make it watchable.
Fresh: Anderson's gentle parody of westerners who lob into an ancient culture expecting to pick up enlightenment and peace as easily as a shoe shine or over-the-counter painkillers is very funny.
Not amazing, but a good rental. The characters are very funny to watch, and the movie doesn't have laugh out loud moments but I found myself chuckling to the brothers playing off each other. This movie has some dramatic moments which I thought were good, they didn't overdo everything, and the movie still maintained its quirkyness. I would also like to say I enjoyed the soundtrack as well.
A must see for those who like movies that are generally good. Overall a masterpiece of Indian art and magnificent acting by Wilson, Brody, and Swartman. Brilliantly done filming. Great plot movement and just a generally great movie. A must see!
Easily my favorite film of the year. Wes Anderson is a genius and i don't know what else to tell you watche this movie and love it
