DAY 25: Your Favorite Documentary Film – The Cove (Louie Psihoyos, 2009)
For someone who’s not gaga over watching documentaries (I have seen a lot, though), I find it pretty fascinating if there’s a docu I’ve seen that leaves impact days after I’ve seen it. That’s how I felt after watching The Cove. It was truthful, raw, and heartbreaking all a the same time. I’m no animal lover, but I don’t think that’s the point they’re establishing. It’s more on robbing the right of these poor dolphins to live, and co-exist with other species.
When I visited Hong Kong three years ago, we made it a requirement that we should visit a dolphin show. We actually did, but now that I know how fishy (pun intended) everything works backstage; the enjoyment factor is already gone. I recommend you to see it just so you can witness the cruelties that man can think of, for the purpose of money and power.
