Darjeeling Unlimited: our generation’s Out of Africa?

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

What do you all think of this trailer of Wes Anderson’s new film The Darjeeling Unlimited?

Looks to me like another film in the time-honored genre of White People Working Out Their Issues Against an Exotic Backdrop. Classics of this genre include Out of Africa and The Constant Gardener.

But then again, I’m totally biased because I have an intense dislike for Anderson’s films. (Pretentious hipster crap. All style and no substance.) I know, it’s blasphemy, but I’m just not a fan, sorry.

So what do you all think?
