The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 05/11/13
An oceanographer and documentarian Steve Zissou tries to create a 2nd documentary to avenge the death of his friend Esteban du Plantie. A co-pilot named Edward "Ned" Plimpton approaches Steve. Jane Winslett-Richardson (Cate Blanchett) interviews Steve. The plot was not tat interesting and humor albeit dry surprisingly coming from the director. Has some decent lines like "People say a lot of things." - Ned "...try to keep morale high." - Steve. As always, the soundtrack was terrific, direction/camera work sensational and color/cinematography was good. Performances were sincere but lacks the charm to keep it interesting. To many unbelievable sequences uch as the claymation sea animals and Steve scaring the "pirates" away just using a single gun. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou was not that horrendous, not great either but worth viewing because of its stars, style of direction and to see an earlier work of a skilled director such as Wes Anderson.
