The Coast Halifax The Cove's revelations shock by Hillary Titley 09/10/2009
Charleston City Paper The Cove is a thrilling, but ultimately depressing, documentary about dolphin slaughter Prone to despair about the state of the world? The Cove could send you spiraling into a deep funk about the endless damage humankind is visiting upon the planet. Our oceans are being fished-out, chemicals render much of the food we do catch toxic, and greedy governments often favor profit over the environment. The Cove is about a lot of things, but at its most basic, it is about the determined, often brave efforts of a team of extreme activists to expose the dolphin slaughter that happens each year in the Japanese coastal village of Taiji. by Felicia Feaster 08/19/2009
