A deadpan tour-de-force
“[Bill Murray’s] performance is a triumph of comic minimalism. Like Gene Hackman’s Royal Tenenbaum, Mr. Murray’s Steve Zissou is a flawed, solipsistic patriarch, though his defining emotion is not intemperate anger but a vague, wistful tristesse. His doughy face fringed by a grizzled Ernest Hemingway beard and topped by a red watch cap, Mr. Murray turns tiny gestures and sly, off-beat line readings into a deadpan tour-de-force, at once utterly ridiculous and curiously touching.”
—A. O. Scott, New York Times
