Even if he didn’t also act, the late David Bowie’s genre-spanning music would still have found its way into countless motion pictures, few more inventively than The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, a poignant father-son drama disguised as loopy underwater adventure. A less ingenious filmmaker might have shelled out for an original recording or two, but Wes Anderson instead tapped singer-actor Seu Jorge, fresh off a run as Knockout Ned in the Oscar-nominated City of God, to play a guitar-wielding deckhand who entertains the crew with Portuguese versions of RCA-era Bowie numbers, like “Life on Mars?” Jorge’s resistance to imitation allows his own warm, expressive voice to shine through, leading Bowie himself to praise “the new level of beauty” the Brazilian brought to his material.
