Disturbing but thrilling documentary,

This review is from: The Cove [DVD]  (DVD)
Little heard of Taiji, Japan has hit the headlines in recent years with their deplorable record on the slaughter of dolphins. Disturbing in lengths the locals go to with regards protecting their 'secret', at least the filming or documenting of their actions, this documentary makes for an enthralling yet horrifying watch. Regardless of the international outcry, despite the attempts by organisations like Sea Shepherd, and interestingly enough in spite of the health implications for their own people, the fishermen and families of Taiji continue to practice their brutal farming and killing practices.
This tale is both a documentary and a thriller. It will keep you on your toes for the duration and you will be enlightened as to what happens every year in a small village in Japan.
