In Wes Anderson’s THE LIFE AQUATIC, a group of oceanic explorers who call themselves Team Zissou embark on a journey to hunt down the “jaguar shark” that ate one of their crew members (Seymour Cassel). Determined to avenge the death of his dear friend, team leader Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) is melancholic about the journey he’s about to make.
I thought the movie was great, Bill Murray is a god. The last Wes Anderson movie I watched was THE ROYAL TENUNBOWNS, and this is along the same strange lines. I just love the fact that there is so much going on in his films away from the focal point of the camera (watch for the electrictionas that never seem to quite fix things). This made me smile all the way through, and that for me is all a movie has to do.
