A Real Documentary on a Fake Documentary
14 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

During production on the film "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2004), documentary filmmakers followed the cast and crew of a film which depicts other documentary filmmakers who follow animal life.

The film quality of this is a bit low, but this may never have been intended for release (it only appears as a special feature, after all). Regardless, it shows Bill Murray in an unscripted fashion that is always worth documenting (he is, after all, a living legend). And seeing how Wes Anderson operates may be of value to up and coming filmmakers who will be influenced by his work.

Definitely worth checking out for anyone who is a fan of the film.
