Film Fest: Deep Blue

Publication YearIssue Date 

Few things are cooler than the ocean. Explorers, horror-fans and visual junkies alike need look no further than our tumultuous seas for their respective fixes. Deep Blue attempts to capture every reason the ocean fascinates us and manages to succeed at nearly every turn. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan, the film brings Hollywood blockbuster-style cinema- tography to the well-worn ocean documentary genre with often stunning results. Above anything else the film is beautiful, whether the images on the screen are of adorable penguins, sinister jellyfish, comical crabs or the monster-fish lurking in the depths. Audiences know what to expect from ocean docs and Deep Blue is no different in this regard. Its production values, though, make it a must see for any ocean nerd.
