The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou - Wes Anderson

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is about a man in his mid-life crisis trying to accomplish much bigger than him and his mediocrity.  The film is a work of art in all the meaning of the expression: the sense of humor is sophisticated, the costumes are designed and tailored according to each character, and the soundtrack includes acoustic versions of songs by David Bowie in Portuguese, as well as musical palindromes.

The Life Aquatic also made a loss in theaters. But art is not supposed to be about money, is it?
