Summary: Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Murray) and his crew set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. (Touchstone Pictures)
An excellent film, a father son story of redemption and reconciliation, complete with Anderson's always incredible visuals, great acting (Willem Defoe is adorable), and an ass-kicking soundtrack. What's not to love? Oh and it proves my long held belief that Jeff Goldblum is "part gay"
It takes a moment to get into the groove of this flick but once you'r in the world of dry humour, brilliant characters and a kick-ass soundtrack with Zissou you just might find yourself ordering matching speedos online.
This is one of those pseudo-artistic intellectual movies that actually seems to have some substance. I feel like everything was rounded, and the choice for a documentary style, gritty filmography really enhanced the experience. Excellent acting.
Stably melancholic under its hysterical surface and only sentimental in a personal and befitting manner, this tragicomedy from Anderson offer a delightful perspective on the difficulty of expressing ones emotions correctly. The scene in where Steve Zissou (played by a fantastic Bill Murray) dance to the music from the walkie-talkie in the helmet is completely unforgettable. This film's heart is tired, but throbbing!
a strange strange movie, anderson's awkward directorial style combined with an equally weird script, the actors pulling out their own inner eccentricities, and to top it all off a soundtrack containing several portuguese versions of david bowie songs. all these things together would make one think this would be a blithering muck of a movie, but it's actually quite charming.
I am a huge Wes Anderson fan. However I think this is my least favourite of his films. There are still plenty of enjoyable moments and the cast is very good here. The script is a little bit uneven and the movie is not as funny as some of Anderson's other masterpieces
