The Cove Review

Movie Review

The Cove: 8 out of 10.

Now don't get me wrong, The Cove is a great documentary about some bad shit going down in Taijii, Japan.  I really liked it.  But The Cove won the Oscar for Best Documentary, and it's not that good.

Off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of documentaries I watched last year that were superior.   Anvil, for example.  And Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father.

But you should see it, cuz it's good.  Unless you really, really like dolphins, in which case this is a bit of a snuff film.
