Tidal Wave of Raves for The Life Aquatic

Peppered with CAPITALIZED EXPLETIVES (you’ve been warned), the early screening “reviews” (better: unedited, sloppy, gushing superlatives) are coming in after a screening of Wes Anderson’s “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” the film I’m more anxious to see than anything since The Return of the King.

Here’s the link to the foulmouthed fanboys at Ain’t-It-Cool News, declaring what may well become the movie to beat at the Oscars this year. Bill Murray’s time has come. Well, it came last year, but the Academy blew it, so, for crying out loud, HIS TIME HAS COME.

Time to go out and rent The Royal Tenenbaums, a brilliant comedy about family, divorce, and ultimately… grace.

    I’ve been excited about this ever I saw the full-color two page ad in the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. It’s on my classroom wall.
