Unpopular opinion: The Darjeeling Limited is actually my favorite Wes Anderson movie! I'm not sure why... but it is!
I don’t think that’s an unpopular opinion! Most people seem to be defending it. It is a beautiful film.

… For the Darjeeling Limited,the brothers do have their own struggles,for Francis it was the attempt of getting over his depression after an implicit attempt of suicide. It was pretty frightening and true as we seen the actor Owen Wilson (who played Francis) withdrawing from the media after his attempted suicide and his battle with depression after the making of that film. In that conversation in the airport toilet,where he unwrapped that bandages from his face and commented to his brothers “I think I still got a lot of healing.” It is somewhat subtle,as Francis is still trying to grapple with his depression and grief over his father’s death.
Peter is still wrangling with his emotions especially his father’s death as Peter Tougette talks about his experience when watching that film in the feature “PICTURES OF LOSS: THE DARJEELING LIMITED, directed by Wes Anderson”
My point is that I think my identification with Peter allowed me to comprehend his stoic grief in the scene I just described. “That could be me,” I thought to myself. “That is how I might look or act if I experienced a death in the family.” I would have been quick to add, “And thank God I haven’t.”
To me,his breaking point was when he was in that mediation scene,there he was look like he was to break out from his armor of being emotionless and in the end when they caught that train together,he seems to look a lot happier and in peace with himself…
