Anderson's fourth film is part high seas adventure, part film industry satire, part existential meditation on the meaning of relationships. It is consistently clever and hilarious, shifting from the light-hearted to the surreal, to scenes of real depth with the kind of ease we've come to expect from the Texan director. Bill Murray heads an eccentric, often brilliant cast, as ageing oceanographer and filmmaker Steve Zissou. No one likes his films any more and his life is falling apart around him. So he rallies a crew around him that includes his estranged wife (Huston), a journalist (Blanchett), and a man who may or may not be his son (Wilson) and takes one last fated revenge expedition in search for the mythical Jaguar Shark.
