Rushmore and Royal Tenenbaums director Wes Anderson is just as beloved for his quirky soundtracks as for his charmingly nutty film scenarios, simply because he doesn't settle for the obvious. Sure, Anderson lacks Tarantino's taste for obscurity, but he's still good at balancing his classic rock urges (the Kinks, John Lennon, Cat Stevens) with offbeat selections by, say, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith. On The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, he goes on a Bowie jag. The twist is that the Ziggy-era faves are performed acoustically in Portuguese by Brazilian singer/actor Seu Jorge, who strums the tunes onscreen in character as safety expert Pelé dos Santos. While Jorge's adaptations are enjoyable, the poorly recorded album versions seem jarringly out of place beside studio tracks by Scott Walker, Joan Baez and the Zombies and incidental pieces by Mark Mothersbaugh and Sven Libaek. A hack job, considering the size of the film's budget.
