A new Tumblr blog theorizes that Max Fischer, a student at Grover Cleveland High School, wrote the Wes Anderson dramedy The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. The investigator/blogger writes:
The Life Aquatic is half-play, half-movie – the sets are elaborately designed and sometimes low budget, but retain much of Max’s earlier fascination for spectacle and adult themes.
This isn’t the first time that TLA’s origins have been wondered about, out loud. Zissou scholars at the Yankee Racers Aquatic Institute have postulated at TLA is in fact a movie within a movie.
