Check it out

I thought I'd bump this thread as this film is currently playing in wide release and water levels are down down down so it's time to catch up with the rest of the world. I saw the film the other night in Boulder and was pretty impressed with the content and execution. It worked well on a number of levels and there is already talk among critics about an Academy Award nomination for a documentary.

On a pure entertainment level, it's a compelling modern day, real life thriller. So even if you believe God put the world here for your use and aren't interested in a bunch of soft-hearted hooligans trying to save some dolphins, it's cool to witness a real life adventure from a group of people on a mission to expose a secret. On a deeper level it was not only a call to action, but it raised a lot of thought provoking questions about personal responsibilities, mankind's place in the world, resource allocations, animal rights, consumption practices, international political relationships, governmental corruption, and more.

Best of all the cinematographer is a local paddler and mountainbuzzer so make friends with him quick because it looks like he'll be going places after this film.

Or if you believe God put the world here for us all to be good stewards of His creation and protect it from man's selfish destruction.....

I've been waiting for some time now to see this film.

Saw the trailer for this awhile back and have wanted to see it. The movie itself and the cinematography look like powerful stuff. Wish I could see it somewhere outside of Boulder though...just a little closer to home.

"The Cove"

Thanks guys. Hopefully a lot of paddlers get a chance to see the film as it shines a light on some key issues that kayakers can certainly relate to and that affect us all. Its not your typical preechy documentary, our editors did movies such as "murderball" "sicko" "hackers" "short circuit" and "mad love" "dog town- Z boys", it will entertain you as well. Find the film in your city @ www.thecovemovie.com

cheers

-BA

FYI...this film is now out on DVD; I got it on Netflix. It is very well done and I wish everyone would bump it to the top of their list.

I hope you'll agree that the fishermen that commit these atrocities and the government officials that allow it to continue are the lowest of the low.

I also hope you'll imagine an Indian company shooting a documentary in the United States on the beef industry. Is there any difference?
