|Louie Psihoyos & Ric O'Barr|
But why O'Barry's focused on "The Cove" is another story. The Cove is a place in Japan where fisherman heard and slaughter dolphins, mercilessly. In this documentary, O'Barry will attempt to record footage of this area and reveal it to the Japanese public and as his greater hope, the world. O'Barry even explains to why the dolphins should not be killed besides the fact that it's inhumane.
|This is how they heard them,....I can't show the rest here.|
The only thing that can be picked on about this film is that it doesn't focus on the fact that dolphins aren't the only ones in danger. There are animals out there that are in worse off conditions. The African elephant for example. Who's protecting them? Who's risking their lives to expose the corruption there? And the only way that'll happen is if we get more people like Ric O'Barry, but those kinds of people are hard to come by nowadays.
Louie Psihoyos' documentary is overwhelmingly shocking to how bad dolphins have it when they're caught in "the cove". Hopefully for those who see it, will become inspired to do what Ric O'Barry does: got out of their way to save animals in danger.
