Leviathan

Leviathan ★★★½

Succesfull and unique documentary about commercial fishing that miraculously results in an almost experimental horrorfilm. Although it’s not really informative, with no interviews or voice-overs, it’s (luckily) mostly focused on being an audiovisual experience, filled with dark, dynamic shots, haunting night scenes and lots of blood. Definitely not for everyone, it’s mostly cinema that grabs you by the throat, or doesn’t, but for me it was a great hypnotic journey. There seems to be a six hour version of this, but that seems like too much, after 80 minutes or so, I felt like I had experienced enough. This kind of abstract documentaries are always a pleasure to discover.
