Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, 2013 (PG-13)

This fascinating documentary examines the life of performing killer whale Tilikum -- who has caused the deaths of several people while in captivity -- and questions the safety and humaneness of confining these intelligent creatures.

Well, if you are looking for the reason to never visit a zoo, you will be served. The way the documentary is constructed makes you look at the expected in a way SeaWorld has nearly no excuse. What also impressed me is how naive were the trainers, and somehow how lucky they have been all along, despite the love they have shared with Tilikum. The story is still the story of Tilikum, and there is a lot to understand about how much he gave and how traumatized he has been. This is actually the most interesting, seeing how responsive he was, and how gentle, most of the time, how evolved. This is a sad story.
