OMG so great!
20 July 2015 | by Maynard HandleySee all my reviews

I'm not going to lie: I find most documentaries awful. The director treats the audience as ignorant idiots, the pacing is glacial, there are more attempts to add fake drama and tension than a reality TV show.

But every so often the material being treated is so fascinating, so beyond the bounds of what you've seen before, that even the most clumsy director cannot screw up. And this is what we have here --- something that was made as an episode of a TV nature documentary but which rises so far above its origins as to be considered a movie and a masterpiece.

Any decent person already knows that the octopus is the most beautiful, the most intelligent, the most fascinating, the all round best sea animal! But even for someone like me who loves them, it was an absolute treat to see so much high quality footage of them floating in the water, displaying their many camouflage talents, and above all solving one problem after another in various labs.

If you already love octopodes, you'll delight in seeing more of them. And if you don't love them, believe me this movie will change your mind. On multiple occasions through it you'll feel as much emotion as in a "real" movie, encouraging the octopus to solve his problem, then cheering triumphantly as he succeeds.

I found this in the movies section of hoopla.com, so it might also be on some of the other movie streaming sites. I know watching a documentary seems like chore when there are so many traditional movies out there. But believe me, you won't regret it.
