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

Painfully depressing documentary of the history of whale hunting mostly because of the blunt honesty behind otherwise poetic phrasing. This is a good short to use to look closer at how Marker uses the philosophies of man in a flat and direct manner to explain the "why?" "how?" and "so what?" in a single statement that is emotionally detached but makes your conscience scream. --PolarisDiB
