The Cove (2009)

Director: Louie Psihoyos. Cast: Richard O'Barry, Joe Chisholm. 92 min. Rated PG-13. Documentary.

You may think of this as a mere wildlife documentary about dolphins, but that description doesn't even touch the surface. Working like a heist movie, The Cove is very successful at exposing the scandal behind what is happening in Japan to 23,000 dolphins every year (it's been awhile since I saw a movie with the Japanese as the bad guys). Disclosing that this documentary contains a literal illustration of "sea of blood" should make you curious enough to watch it - and after that, you will think twice about buying that discounted ticket to Sea World.
