Such a retro spectacle, I loved the look. Shot by the masterful David Mullens, they made an early 1970s witch drama. This is the type of niche film I’ve seen several times before, the original iterations, and the script plays like it came straight out of that time. It’s a trip of a story, with the insanely gorgeous Samantha Robinson taking us back to some vaguely familiar Technicolor hippie magick dreamworld.

Needless to say I found many moments hilarious simply for the pastiche. On another level, the narrative is straight drama, not intended as comedy at all. It’s an odd blend.

Nearing the end it does sag a bit, and could have used a bit more moving along. I get why maybe it didn’t take off with audiences and remains more of a cult film. Would that I could have seen it on the big screen, but it never came…

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…

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.
