The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou creates a strange world based on Jacques Cousteau's documentary programs, but which also shares DNA with vintage cartoons like Sealab 2020, and thus its spoof incarnation 2021 and things like the Venture Bros. Bill Murray at last gets the lead, and perhaps that's why this seems to be Anderson's most improvised film. Many call it its weakest, that it meanders etc. That may be, but I also think it's part of the point. Zissou's life meanders, and things go wrong when he tries to take shortcuts. The central metaphor of his quest is somewhat murky, but those underwater metaphors really do fit the situation. He's an Ahab seeking his Moby Dick and a return to glory days, but he'll find his legacy may lie elsewhere, in a possible illegitimate son (Owen Wilson). If it loses focus sometimes, it's so we can explore this crazy world, a world MADE for exploration and beautifully retro-designed. You know what it makes me think of? Norwegian Ninja. And that's a favorite of mine.

For me, it might be Anderson's most visually interesting film.

I don't understand how this movie is the lowest rated Wes Anderson movie at Rottentomatoes! To me this is the best one, together with Grand Budapest Hotel and Royal Tenenbaums.

That while The Fantastic Mr Fox was rated very high while I thought that's his worst movie...

Even though I love Andersons movies, I could not really connect with this one. The parts were there, but somehow they just didn't add up for me.

i think this is wes's real opus. visually beautiful, incredibly film, wonderful performances, and earnest in its emotions. it leapfrogs everything else he has done by miles.

Very quirky, I'm not one of it's biggest fans but I certainly didn't hate it either. Well worth a watch as I'm sure some people will love it!

Goofy in Anderson's own special way, with a charming and peculiar set of characters.

Peculiar and interesting. That is, a film by Wes Anderson.
