Oceans (2009)

Director(s): Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzaud. Narrator: Pierce Brosnan. 84 min. Rated G. France, Switzerland, Spain. Documentary.

Compared to the 2008 documentary Earth, which lied on a subtext of global warming, this DisneyNature feature is more concerned about environmental pollution, and contains a prominent human element in the footage - as opposed to Earth, in which no humans were present. Both are visually stimulating (the beauty of the blanket octopus provides a moment of meditation), and both movies are well worth the watch. But like the other water documentary Tapped, this one will make you think twice before you buy the next bottled water, and throw away the plastic.
