The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is Wes Anderson’s fourth feature length film and was released in 2004 early 2005. It was written by Anderson and Noah Baumbach and was filmed in and around Naples, Rome and the Italian Riviera. The offbeat comedy stars Bill Murray as Steve Zissou, an eccentric oceanographer. Steve Zissou sets out to exact revenge on the “jaguar shark” that ate his partner Esteban. It is a really great movie which prompted me to search a little around the net and I stumbled across the below illustration which i thought was great.

Murray’s character is homage to Jacques-Yves Cousteau. The film is dedicated to Captain Cousteau.
