I don't usually do things like this on my blog, but I saw the documentary The Cove over the weekend I feel compelled to act in any way that I can.
I'll admit that I didn't really want to watch this film. I knew the following: 1. That it was about dolphin slaughtering and 2. That it won an Oscar. I also knew that Greg was never going to relent until I watched it, even going as far as offering to watch it all over again with me.
I finally relented and, even though it really was a hard film to watch, I'm so glad I did. Knowledge is power, right?
Something has to be done about the situation depicted in this film and frankly I feel pretty baffled about what exactly someone like me can do. The only thing I can think of is to try and encourage as many other people to see it as I can.
So please check out the below trailer and then rent the DVD. You won't be sorry. Not only is this a really important situation to be aware of, but it's just a really well-made movie. If you have seen it, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
