MIFF Season - The Cove (Louie Psihoyos, 2009)

**½
USA

A motley crew of activists engage in astonishing and extremely dangerous tactics in this militant exposé of mass profit-motivated dolphin slaughter in rural Japan. Rambling though the film is, and protracted, it’s impossible not to be affected by the cause. And if for some reason you’re resisting, director and star Louie Psihoyos has just the music cue for you (and then some).
