The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

I liked this movie in the end. Anderson usually makes interesting
sets, and this movie was no exception. Also there were nice little
“magical realism” tidbits put in here and there. This was really
much, much better than The Royal Tenenbaums (which I hated). Bill
Murray, who is probably everybody’s favorite actor by now (I’ve been a
fan since The Razor’s Edge), was as good as usual. Cate Blanchett was
good, and Willem Dafoe stood out for me. Many of Anderson’s movies
fail to engage me… his style doesn’t usually leave me empathizing
with the characters very much. This movie was different, kind of
surprise. I recommend it.
