Probably Wes Anderson's most disjointed effort in an otherwise remarkable career. "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" lacked any of the quixotic energy of his earlier efforts. Although eerily beautiful, especially in the underwater hunt for the elusive Jaguar shark, the overall impression was as fatigued and craggy as Zissou's despondent veneer. One of the few bright spots was Jeff Goldblum's Alistair Hennesey, the foppish rival to the Cousteau-like title character. Goldblum's natural smugness worked perfectly with the posh explorer as every vain moment was somehow absorbing; whether hunting pirates in tailored boxer-briefs or swatting at a whimpering dog with The Wall Street Journal.
