The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou – 2004 Wes Anderson

2020-07-03T10:31:00+00:00

I’m confident it’s his weakest screenplay but the visuals are extremely strong—any critic that is talking about how their tastes don’t mesh with Anderson’s humor baffle me—I don’t see how they can’t admire the visuals
