The Cove (2009) Documentary

February 7, 2011

Ric O’Barry, trainer in the TV show Flipper, starred in this documentary about the killing of dolphins in Taijii Japan. The film won the 2010 Oscar for the Best Documentary film. The cove is an area where the dolphins are trapped and evaluated as to whether or not they are candidates for amusement parks. Some survive but most of the 23,000 are killed for their meat. It is a heart wrenching happening that few people are aware of. The scenes are pretty horrific so have an empty stomach and be prepared for a real downer. Well filmed. The music soundtrack was quite neutral as it really made no impression on me at all.
