2. The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
One of Bill Murray’s only leading roles in the Anderson universe, he shines as the title character, Steve Zissou. Murray knows how to play the miserable man down on his luck so well. His characters’ disconnection from reality is what makes him comedic, and in The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, he delivers that disconnection perfectly. Murray plays the title, Steve Zissou, a modern day Jacques Cousteau. After his partner is killed by shark while filming a documentary, makes it his quest to kill that shark. Packed with great supporting actors such as William Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, and Anjelica Huston, The Life Aquatic proves to be a fun, yet depressing ride.
