The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004)

Directed by Wes Anderson
with: Jeff Goldblum, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Cate Blanchett, Owen Wilson

From beginning to end, this movie captivates the viewer's eyes. With impressive, very-detailed and well-thought-out mise-en-scene designs  in pastel-esque colors, Wes Anderson offers us a world that suits the uniqueness and weirdness of the characters' psyche. It is known as a comedy, but if I were to define a genre for it, it would be psycomedy because of how it plays with the psychological aspects of the characters. It is an insight at the boringness of failed adulthood with shared universal fears. The penultimate scene is meticulously and beautifully constructed in every way. It is an excellent movie by an excellent director with a grandiose soundtrack by Seu Jorge who covers David Bowie hits in portuguese. 

Highly Recommended.  
Rating: 8.5/10
