Oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) used to be an icon. Now he’s washed-up, broke, and depressed. Questioning his life’s course, Zissou and his beanie-clad crew set sail on a mission of revenge against the possibly non-existent Jaguar Shark that devoured his best friend (Seymour Cassel). With an all-star cast including Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe, and Cate Blanchett, Anderson’s woefully underrated sea-faring adventure finds the director at his most eccentric and sublime.
Shown in conjunction with the film course The Empathy and Ecstasy of Wes Anderson, Pt. 2, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Lisa DeNight.
