Best of 2013: #9: Blackfish (Gabriela Cowperthwaite)

#9. Blackfish. d. Gabriela Cowperthwaite. USA.

Who would have thought that such an upsetting topic (the exploitation of killer whales) would make for such an entertaining documentary? Blackfish does an exceptional job at turning SeaWorld into a deplorable corporate villain, one which values profit over life—human and animal alike.

Blackfish is currently on Blu-ray and DVD from Magnolia Pictures and is streaming on Netflix in the U.S., and is on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.K. from Dogwoof.
