“Sharkwater” is a movie that attempts to shed a different light on one of the ocean’s most interesting inhabitants. Matt Zoller Seitz writes in today’s NY Times (Critics Pick):
The ocean is just large enough to contain the ambition of “Sharkwater.” This beautiful and horrifying debut feature by the underwater cameraman Rob Stewart of Toronto characterizes the depletion of the world’s shark population as an ecological catastrophe with dire consequences for humanity. Brazenly melodramatic and furiously angry, “Sharkwater” aims to be nothing less than the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” of aquatic conservation: propaganda with teeth. (full review)
