dionysus67's rating of the film Three Cheers for the Whale

Evocative and despairing history/critique of whalehunting. Amazing how much information can be condensed in such a short film but not unexpected from someone like Marker and co. Impressive use of stills that cover the early phases of whalehunting. Serious contemporary dilemmas are raised (declining biodevirsity vs. tradition [e.g. Japan]). Many cheers!
