Quotes

Charles Clover - Author, 'The End of the Line': If you've got orangutans and cheetahs and lions and tigers and things on that menu, I mean, people would, you know, they'd be walking away. There would be huge scandals, there'd be tabloid stories about it. People would be execrated, people would be, there'd be turds on people's doorsteps, envelopes shoved through them. People would burn each other's houses down, scratch their cars. And yet, we're doing it to things in the sea and it's the same thing.

The Unvarnished Truth (from the end of the hook,to the end of your fork)
5 February 2010 | by druid333-2See all my reviews

With the series of outstanding documentaries dealing with the dodgy subject of food,is it time for another documentary dealing,this time with the denizens of the deep blue sea? Answer:YOU BET! 'The End Of The Line'is an eye opening film about how our seafood source is slowly being depleted (Sushi,anyone?),and within the next 50 (or so)years,there will not be any more fish in the waterways of the world,due to over fishing (marine life,as we know it,will only be a distant memory,and anything resembling marine life will be on display in either history books,or worse yet,places such as Marine World,where dolphins,whales,etc.are exploited for the sake of entertainment). Rupert Murray ('Unknown White Male') directs & photographs this wake up call that,although does not take up a vegetarian agenda (such as 'Food,Inc.'),does offer some suggestions as to reduce the danger of certain species of marine life,due to over fishing. Not rated by the MPAA,this film contains some rather upsetting footage of mass fishing, including some raw, bloody footage of fish being brutally handled
