    This is easily one of the best movies I've seen in the past few years. No story, no bull, pure cinema. I think it really needs to be experienced in a theater though because the sound design is phenomenal. This won't be everyone's, or even MOST people's, cup of tea, however if you are a fan of experimental or non narrative cinema then this is mandatory viewing. The scope is small but feels gigantic, the images are beautiful and haunting. Just go see it, hopefully you'll understand. Expand

    It’s really a radical experiment in non-fiction cinema – not seeking to enlighten or inform, but to disorientate us, practically to drown us, in a nightmare vision of the ocean’s power.

    The results – achieved through small cameras clipped to nets, masts and the crew – will hook some and induce seasickness in others.

    Not an easy watch, and something in which you must make an investment of attention – but a fascinating piece of work.
