I never saw it in the theaters but will blindly buy it due to Wes Anderson's direction alone. However, I must admit that March 23 is going to be an expensive (and exceptional) release day - Toy Story 1 & 2, Mad Men, and now this.

Jason Schwartzman claimed a Darjeeling Criterion was in the works while promoting Fantastic Mr. Fox, so perhaps Fox IS licensing these to Criterion, and are just requesting a nice solid little window before Criterion does anything.

Since DL was Anderson's best movie, I'd say no.

You might be one of the few people who actually think that. Easily his worst.

I didn't know we were talking about TRT

and to have that as the worst movie in your catalog of work (haven't seen FMF yet) isn't a bad thing

Everyone knows that The Life Aquatic is hands down Anderson's worst movie - not Darjeeling. Can't wait to grab this one on blu-ray - easily one of my favourite movies in a long time.

Life Aquatic is his second best film after Royal Tenenbaums.

I'm not sure if I'd put Fox in third, before Rushmore, or fourth, after Rushmore.
