    The Last Duel

    ★★★½

    it gets a bit sloggish once you hit 1:40 and you feel like you get the gist, but it is a generally well-executed version of a not all-too-unique structure.

    not sure it had to be THIS long, but maybe that’s just the hour at which i watched it.

    Was frustrating to see so much indifference and lack of enthusiasm for this film at first, but from reading some of the comments, it does make sense why this wouldn't click for a lot of people.

    The notion of whale culture is immensely fascinating and so many documentaries/etc seek to cast an encompassing light on what is a still-developing scientific process. Like James Cameron's SECRETS OF THE WHALES from earlier last year over on D+, FATHOM fails to really do…
