YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

People, friends technically, keep saying "But I have to see Darjeeling Ltd.", as if there is a social contract with Wes Anderson because he's brought twee values to the big screen. Would, with anyone else, we turn a blind eye so willfully to such regular appearance/deploy of Ethnic Stereotype as "the help" (see also: Jonah's Slate pc). And it's not like he's doing as an biting, artful commentary-- dude is not Kara Walker. So why the have to?
