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

Could have been good but for egotistical film maker

This film is about Sea Shepherd's efforts to stop whaling and other nautical animal abuse around the world, told by the ex-Sea Shepherd member Peter Brown. Unfortunately for the cause, Brown presents this film in a very egotistical way, and there's more of an emphasis on personal reputation enhancement than actually focusing on the problems at hand.

As a vegan and, more or less, a supporter of Sea Shepherd, I believe this film really wasted the opportunity to expose the animal abuse in a serious way to a wider audience. Some of the narration and music really trivialised a very serious issue. All in all, there is good information in the film, if you can break through the sugar and superficiality.

3/10
