Compassionate Animal TV Review: The Cove
Posted: July 28th, 2009 9:30 AM
The Cove is a thrilling new documentary about the Taijii dolphin slaughter. It releases to theatres Friday, July 31st. In a word; PHENOMENAL! - A definite must see!! This film will appeal to a large demographic of viewers. I would encourage even the faintest of heart to see this film. As stated in The Cove, people are either “activists or they are inactivists”, and apathy empowers corruption, destruction and cruelty. This film is a must see not only to expose Japan and stop them from poisoning human populations with toxic waste, but to shut down the hideous killing of intelligent mammals as supported by the international captive wildlife trade.
This film pulls from a wide range of factual content and presents it in a cohesive format laced together by the heroic story of how the team of filmmakers captured the forbidden footage of the Taijii dolphin slaughter without getting arrested.
The Cove not only exposes the cruel dolphin trade and slaughter, but it also highlights issues of wild capture, the international captive animal trade, animals in entertainment, animals as food, disease from toxic waste, pollution, the destruction of our oceans, and corrupt governments driven by capitalism.
