The Cove

Five minutes to go, and I walk into an empty auditorium. A woman enters who has a seat next to mine, then two more people follow her. That was Friday. On Sunday I am told that no more than twenty people attended the screening. You Animal Liberationistas, you Greenies, you Tree Huggers, shame on you all. This is a classically constructed, gripping documentary, about an annual event that obviously Hereford activists either know nothing about or do not care about, that should have been packed out. The one underwater shot as the 'harvest' began is on its own worth going for, and is certainly worthy of any horror film. If it gets it, the film will deserve its Oscar.

The Cove has indeed won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature.
