Director Wes Anderson is known for offbeat, relatively low-budget films such as Bottle Rocket and Rushmore.

His latest, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou starring Bill Murray, is a bigger film in the same vein.

Reviewer Bob Mondello says the film may leave viewers feeling lost at sea, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
