    I almost didn't watch this movie because it features captive orcas. 4 stars for one reason: Powerful performance by the impressive, talented Marion Collitard.

    Spoiler alert...

    ... alternate title: Selfish Ne'er Do Well Realizes Dreams.

    The burn was a bit too slow for me. Upgraded to 3 from 2.5 because of the final scene which I liked a lot.

    If the idea of systemic pesticides doesn't disturb you, I don't know what does. Rebranded chemical warfare.

    Finally on Netflix! I've wanted to see this movie for quite a while. It's good, yeah? Is it? Blud, bruv, fam. Some quality banter in this one -
    "Go home. Lock your doors. Do your homework. Watch Naruto." haha "Nothing to do with gangs. Or drugs. Or rap music. Or violence in video games." So good!

    Heartbreaking. Shocking. As I said after watching Project Nim, just leave them alone!

    Truly stranger than fiction. Actually interesting. A documentary worth watching. Brings to mind the unnerving fact that everyone involved in this case (and so many others that are much more serious) was incredibly incompetant.
