Movies are cool.
It's great. Daniel Day Lewis is great. Was great to watch while eating diced pineapple. Funny at moments while devastating at other moments. The acting was amazing, the writing felt authentic (except for the ending) and the presentation was creative at times for a biopic. I don't know what else to say except that I liked it.
I liked the cops, they were probably the most entertaining part of the film. Everything else was just okay, nothing really stuck with me.
I know a lot of people around my age grew up watching this movie, I didn't. So I might have had a better connection with it if I had seen it when it came out.
But, I didn't. Not bad, but not great either.
It's charming in a way that only Wes Anderson can pull off. Looks gorgeous, and tells a nice story about a character who I would despise if I met them. But I guess that's part of the humor in this film. It wouldn't work if Steve Zissou was a good person. It plays a lot on his flaws and pokes at them.
I'll update this review later with something more in-depth.
Currently, mixed feelings about this one. While I like the style and presentation of this interesting concept, the writing itself was definitely the weakest link. Felt like a Black Mirror episode without any of the elements that made Black Mirror good. So, I guess this is like a Season 5 episode of Black Mirror.
