    Maybe the most disturbing movie I've ever seen. As awful as the actions in Blackfish seemed, they pale in comparison to what OPS captured happening to the Taiji dolphins.

    I couldn't help but look up whether the slaughtering of dolphins in that lagoon is continuing today, 5 years after the documentary was released to massive acclaim, raising awareness of what's happening. Of course it is. Because that's the way the world works, right?

    Watching this film made me very angry not only because of how horribly violent it was, but also because of how senseless the violence was. It's baffling to see these people being so cruel without giving it a second thought, all for the purpose of harvesting meat which is far too poisonous for human consumption. The film really takes its time building up to the main footage of the slaughter and focuses a lot of time behind the scenes of…

    The solemnity and seriousness with which these people approach their 'mission' is downright hilarious, as is their sense of supreme self-righteousness and self-importance. It'd be like Man on Wire, if Philippe Petit walked across the Twin Towers to save the rainforests or some shit.

    Egotistical liberal bullshit run amuck.
