The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

From the the stop-frame animated underwater creatures, to the wonderful deadpan gags, to the Seu Jorge/David Bowie soundtrack, there are plenty of stylistic strokes of genius to enjoy here. But it's Bill Murray, staring out glumly into the abyss with a red cap and Papa Smurf beard, at the heart of The Life Aquatic. It's a tour-de-force of Murray's talents – only he could be a juvenile, ignorant, disenchanted sad-sack and still be a movie's hilarious hero, let alone top your imaginary dinner guest wish-list. On top of all the attention to detail and charm writer/director Wes Anderson pours into the film, it's also hilarious and the director's funniest film yet.

The effect is often soporific.

The actor's (Murray) quiet, downcast presence modulates the antic busyness that encircles him, and his performance is a triumph of comic minimalism.

Wilson drops the ironic smirk to give a sincerely affecting performance. His scenes with Murray provide the ballast when the script veers off into unconvincing pirate attacks and animated sea creatures.

The damnedest film. I can't recommend it, but I would not for one second discourage you from seeing it.

An exquisitely evocative movie that elevates rueful melancholia to a superpower.

Wonderfully weird and wistful adventure-comedy about a fish-out-of-water oceanographer.
