My Hero: Steve Zissou

If you havent already seen The Life Aquatic (featuring my all time favorite person, Bill Murray) do it, and do it NOW! If you have already seen it, you'll understand why Steve Zissou is my hero!

To give you abit of a run down The Life Aquatic is about a group of oceanic explorers who call themselves Team Zissou, embarking on a journey to hunt down the "jaguar shark" that ate one of the crew. Centered around team leader Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) whose financial troubles and nostalgia for his past make him behave like a past-his-prime tyrant, and featuring a hodgepodge of eccentrics (a pregnant journalist doing a magazine feature (Cate Blanchett), an airline pilot from Kentucky who claims he is Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), an emotionally needy European (Willem Dafoe), an acoustic guitarist who sings David Bowie songs in Brazilian Portuguese (Seu Jorge), Zissou's brilliant wife (Anjelica Houston), and her ex-husband who is Zissou's seafaring nemesis- Jeff Goldblum) Team Zissou is a sight to see! Oh...and if you havent already got a copy of Seu Jorge's album "The Life Aquatic" do that too!!
