Wes Anderson’s incisive quirky comedy build up stars complex characters like in ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ with Bill Murray on in the leading role. An ocean adventure documentary film maker Zissou is put in all imaginable life situations and a tough life crisis as he attempts to make a new film about capturing the creature that caused him pain.
"In twelve years, he'll be eleven and a half."
To me, this is Wes Anderson's masterpiece,
but not until this viewing did I realize how much I truly adore it.
(what angelic planet did Cate Blanchett come from?)
And yes, this really is an adventure, Mr. Zissou.
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is Wes Anderson in a nutshell: strange, funny, bittersweet, droll, adventurous, wonderful and able to perfectly pack a strong emotional punch into an otherwise quirky romp. He creates his own sense of bubbling and irresistible artificiality - this time, essentially playing with toy boats - but in it all injects so much more in the ways of emotion that his playful dioramas unveil humanity, hilarity and that burning and wondrous sensation to cry and laugh all at once.
The story, as straight as it can, follows an oceanographer/adventurer and his crew on what may be a simple revenge mission - kill the shark that ate my friend - or, and most likely is so,…
I wonder if it remembers me...
God that line and that scene are great. Wes Anderson knows how to end a film for sure. Sometimes its just one, timely sentence. It was the same with the "I've had a rough year, dad." line from Tenenbaums, which never fails to turn my face into the Mississippi River.
I think the reason Life Aquatic failed to bring the waterworks might subconsciously be the films biggest "problem." It really is a plethora of misguided emotions. But with that being said, Life Aquatic has always been a Wes Anderson film that I've had a strange fondness for. I love the concept, I like the cheesy but charming deep sea creature effects, I…
The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou is a film which takes its time to divulge all of its dimensions. First comes the blunt, black humour which Wes Anderson typically keeps measured. It's a hilarious film which chronicles Steve Zissou's unprecedented adventure which moves between kidnappings, gunfights and deep sea diving escapades with the typical quirkiness and fluidity. Then comes the scope and spirit. It covers such vast ground in its two hours - sailing the high seas with a crew that is as colourful as can be. But after some thought, then the drama begins to manifest. A story of a man traversing a mid-life crisis, a conflicted conscience and a vehement revenge mission. The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou…
What used to be my least favorite Wes Anderson film (although I still thought it was really good), I now love as much as the rest of his filmography. Kind of wish I hadn't waited so many years to give it a rewatch but maybe seeing it at this point in my life was exactly what I needed. Just wonderful.
Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou is perfect in its own zany, messy, and crazily melancholic way. A deliriously goofy homage to the works of Jacques Cousteau slowly blossoms into a truthful and sincere examination of personal crises and their ramifications on others, all while providing a daring and colorful adventure to delight in. Every frame reveals a new u-turn or side street, yanking the audience around so much it'll give whiplash to any attentive eye.
This is all perfectly welcome of course, as the combination of the amazing cast, vibrant cinematography, ravishing soundtrack, and the constant bursts of emotional honesty and side-aching laughs culminates in Wes Anderson's finest work to date. The film is endlessly quotable, rewatchable, and entertaining in just about every aspect. I'll forever be on Team Zissou.
Oh, and Jeff Goldblum hits a three-legged dog in this masterpiece. Go ahead and label me heartless, but I will never get tired of that moment. NEVER.
Instead of watching totally amazing and unique filmmakers like "Yowg", I decided to watch another shitty Wes Anderson film, Wes Anderson you are so shit. Why don't you have multiple 10/10 reviews talking about your own films and how good you are in them in the third person. Like what the hell are you doing!
(now here are the lyrics for Teenage Satellites because when I'm in a bad mood I listen to California idk y)
I can almost see your house from here
But the signal seems to disappear so what's the problem?
Then you hit me like a Friday night
Like a handgun in a firefight
Dive in slow motion towards the ocean
Let's run away,…
My aunt died on Sunday. I am still devastated. But this helped.
The Life Aquatic is Wes Anderson at one of his career highs, with a stunning Bowie soundtrack- made all the more effective by current news- and a career best comedic performance by Bill Murray. Also,the large ensemble cast goes well with the sprawling story of one mans story of revenge. This is a very well put together film by a man that's excellent at is craft so don't be worried at the 53% on Rotten Tomatoes as this is one of Anderson's best.
Just from reading the title and looking at the cover, you can tell this film is done by Wes Anderson. The best way I can describe this film is that it is the most Wes Anderson, Wes Anderson film. This is not him not caring, but it is like Moonrise Kingdom on Liquid Cocaine. In my mind, this is a love it, or hate it kind of movie. If you only think any of his movies are just "good" than you will not like this film. Every one of Wes Anderson's films in my opinion, are fantastic. So naturally, I love this movie. The Grand Budapest Hotel is still my favorite, but this is a close second. I have not…
2016 movie viewings, #104. Out of all the working directors in Hollywood right now, Wes Anderson might just be the most frustrating out of all of them: because it's undeniable at this point, even to his fans, that his entire career has consisted of essentially remaking the same exact film over and over and over again, eight times now and still counting; but yet he's so damn good at making that one film, which means you…
Matthew Gray Gubler❤️>>>>>
While a stretch from Anderson's best work, The Life Aquatic is still a more than worthwhile experience. Packed with both humour and some brilliant moments throughout, by far the best one, though, is the penultimate one. Suddenly you realise you're watching something really, really special.
"Do you think he remembers me?"
A simple line, but one that the whole film builds towards. The film brings a true sense of wonder, not through graphic fidelity or grandeur, but through an ensemble of well built characters and an empathy for the entire collection of emotions they're experiencing in those seconds. It's a feeling so many films fall short of, one that's not explored nearly as much as it deserves. It left me grinning uncontrollably. It's beautiful.
A God damn perfect movie. One of my favorites.
Well, now I've seen every single Wes Anderson film, and I ended it on a note that was merely... okay? I think I liked this a tiny bit more than Bottle Rocket, but it was still just "meh". I can imagine that the lesser Anderson I will like, maybe even love, but for now Life Aquatic merely okay.
Not bad though. Not a single bad film from this director. Can't wait to see what he does next.
my favorites that i love primarily because of visuals (colors, symmetry, overall cinematography) regardless of plot, characters and anything else…
Films where their style fills the screen so absolutely, substance is but an afterthought.
Only added some that I've seen,…
