THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU
2004, Buena Vista Pictures, 119 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

Featuring an all-star cast, this wonderfully strange film about an oceanographer and hack undersea documentarian (Bill Murray) seeking revenge on the shark that ate his partner is both hilarious and melancholy. A combination Jacques Cousteau and Captain Ahab, Murray plans to film his underwater revenge on the infamous jaguar shark. Those along for the journey include his ex-wife (Anjelica Huston), her ex-husband (Jeff Goldblum), a salty seaman (Willem Dafoe) and a man who may or may not be his son (Owen Wilson).
