the stressed out life
yeah, i saw wes anderson's the life aquatic with steve zissou.
it's good, but style wise, it's probably anderson's least cleanest film and which i mean, like editing and the camera movements. where rushmore and the royal tennebaums were very calculated and precise and drew directly from influences like truffuat, strugess, and renior, the life aquatic style wise is more in line with the earlier works of cassavetes, the italian neo realism movement of the 60s as well as the 70s italian thrillers like deep red. the performances are good, in particular willem dafoe. still undecided about how much of an influence the new writer, noah baumbach had on the film, it'll probably take a second viewing.
but, it's good. not great, but not bad either. its entertaining.
one of these days, i'll probably write up a decent review.
then again, i always tell myself that one of these days that i'm gonna ask the sexy girl from across the street if she'll wash my car.
