I'd consider myself a real Wes Head, as I love his entire filmography, but this film doesn't work for me. Why? I don't entirely know. All the typical elements of his films are here, but why doesn't it work? I realize I won't be able to hear your answers. Send them to me by carrier pigeon.

Anderson's weakest film thus far is by no means a bad one. "The Life Aquatic" rides an interesting line between being too grounded and human, and too bizarre, but it never really lands on any one side of the argument either way. It's mostly an examination of the titular Steve Zissou's relationship with his estranged son, and in many ways this is its strongest thread, but between pirate captures and depictions of crew life, the message it's trying to spread gets buried. Still a fine time, though.

Wes Anderson impressed right off the bat with my first exposure to him. Perhaps the film can come off as smug for the most part. The screen play and performances evoke a honest portrayal of trying to recapture the glory days. As well as reconnecting with family. The funny moments and honest tear worthy moments are held together strongly by Bill Murray's criminally underrated performance.
