- Customer Reviews:
Oscarr-nominated writer/director Wes Anderson ('Rushmore,' 'The Royal Tenenbaums') has assembled an all-star cast to set sail for outrageous misadventures on the high seas in this exciting & wildly original comedy. Eccentric, down-but-not-out oceanographer Steve Zissou (Murray) & his motley crew - Team Zissou - find themselves in troubled waters when they attempt to track down the mysterious 'jaguar shark' that ate his partner while filming a documentary of their latest adventure. Adding to his nautical nightmares, Zissou must contend with a beautiful journalist (Blanchett) assigned to write a profile, & a new member of the team who might possibly be his long-lost son (Wilson). The unsinkable Zissou faces hilarious complications trying to keep his expedition afloat while bailing out from budgetary woes & a host of other challenges (including a close encounter with marauding pirates).

I also recommend purchasing "The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions featuring Seu Jorge" to accompany this cd.
Original Life Aquatic Studio
Imagine my horror when the Bowie covers turned out to be the worst recordings I have ever heard on ANY CD. I don't know how they did it, but they were great in the movie but sounded like they were recorded on a dictaphone through a shoe-box in the CD. In one, the levels are so wrong, all you hear is the guitar and barely the vocals. Seems to me they are looking to make a quick buck on this one, when what they should have done is re-recorded them in a studio. The only reason I gave this 2 stars (instead of Zero) is that the rest of the music is moderately redeeming...
Later, I was talking to a fellow Bowie fan about my most dissapointing CD purchase in the recent memory... turns out he went through the very same thing...
Seu - if you are out there, please record these properly... I'm sure you would have some takers...
