SPOILER ALERT

Do watch the show first, before bothering with the script.

In episode 1 I mentioned ‘drunk cam.’ Here’s what it looks like:

Those shots are at 16 frames per second, maximum shutter and then slowed down so it doesn’t play back too quickly at 24 fps. Later in the episode there is a very surreal 12 fps sequence.

I had to make an irreversible decision at that final scene. Do I simply shoot the whole thing with drunk cam? What if it’s too smeared and hard to tell what’s being filmed? I did all sorts of tests ahead of time, and I was torn about 18, 16, 14 fps. When we filmed and there was no time to screw around anymore it dawned on me that we HAD to separate the aesthetics from other shows. That’s one area where we can…

Flavorwire

Today, our friends over at the Criterion Collection are giving the Blu-ray upgrade treatment to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Wes Anderson’s 2004 comedy/drama — a film that arrived with sky-high expectations (it was Anderson’s first film after the acclaimed Royal Tenenbaums, and star Bill Murray’s first since his Oscar-nominated turn in Lost in Translation) that it didn’t quite meet. But few films could have, frankly, and seen from this distance, Life Aquatic holds up quite well; in fact, it’s one of many films from the first decade of the 21st Century that doesn’t seem to have the reputation they deserve. In the spirit of celebrating such overlooked gems, we’ve assembled this list of the most underrated pictures of the 2000s.

CheapThrills_Final-2

Instant Cult Status

A first-time director, no money, no air conditioning and a captivating story that I’d been hoping would show up–I don’t actually look forward to much from the movie business these days.

 

Sadistic elite depravity and the corruption of money keep two down on their luck guys enthralled by the prospect of easy riches. Not so easy it turns out.  The puppetmasters sink their hooks into the two, and it becomes increasingly harder for them to wriggle out from their machinations.

A socio-political undercurrent grounds this black grindhouse comedy. With very little in resources, the crew managed to score a diabolical win and thrill them at last year’s festivals. Cheap Thrills showed up at the big red neighborhood boxes, and it’s sure to cut a little deeper than the competition. So bon appetit.
