watched The Cove (2009) for the first time…

13 Aug

A couple months back I read a pretty amazing news story about a pod of dolphins in Ireland that unsuccessfully attempted to rescue a construction worker that fell into the ocean. It got me googling for related stories. Somehow I was directed to a review for the The Cove. It’s a couple years old but sounded really interesting. The documentary tells the story of Ric O’Barry and his dream team group of animal activists as they attempt to shed light on the sickening slaughter of dolphins that occurs every September in Taiji, Japan. I was blown away. It’s easily up there with Hoop Dreams as one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen. Combine an animal-liberation message with a spy thriller and a touch of conspiracy and The Cove is the result.

    Yeah this doc was intense. Ric Barry also did a TV show called Blood Dolphins which is similar.
