Jake Cole
Slant Magazine

Criterion's upgrade of Wes Anderson's most ambitious film is one of the label's finest packages.

Anderson reminds one of an athlete who was brought into the pros at too early of an age. He has spurts of great talent, but lacks the discipline or practiced skills needed to deliver quality work with consistency.

Not only has my faith in Anderson as a filmmaker been shaken, but this flick has done the unthinkable: it's a Criterion release that I'm going to advise you not to buy.

The more dysfunction that Wes Anderson heaps onto his characters, the more he loves them. And he really loves Steve Zissou.

Wes Anderson speaks with his own voice and I don't think he cares if you don't understand.
