Storyline

Seen through the eyes of activist Peter Jay Brown, Confessions grants the viewer an intimate look at shipboard life amongst these self proclaimed animal saviors and sea rebels who shaped the green movement we know and love today. Peter and his associates' exploits are as much comedy as cause. These extremists proudly fly the skull and cross-bones while performing extraordinary feats of daring on the high seas. Their fleet of ramming vessels inflicts damage to whalers, illegal drift-netters, and seal hunters that operate illegally world-wide. The hard nosed cast of characters exude bravery and whit, all while engaging in action packed conflict including sinkings, boardings, arrests, and plenty of rammings. Written by Mary Murphy

Hilarious inside view of the lives of eco-warriors.
21 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter Brown has managed to capture the essence of what drives certain people who are committed to working to save what is left of the biodiversity of our planet. The movie depicts activists in their most valiant moments and presents them, warts and all, in a humorous manner. The "eco-destroyers" are also presented in a mostly humorous manner. This documentary differs from all others made about the environmental movement in that it uses humor to inform, educate and entertain. "Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist" is an accurate portrayal of the major campaigns that Sea Shepherd has engaged in over the years and the day to day life of the crew members and activists. Of course the ultimate irony is that the Sea Shepherd activists are not really the eco-terrorists, the people terrorizing the planet are the true eco-terrorists!
