The End of the Line

ORIGINAL TITLE:
The End of the Line
Storbritannia / 2009 / 82 min
DIRECTOR:
Rupert Murray
To fish or not to fish

The fact that a documentary about overfishing can manage to become one of the most talked-about documentary films of the year, suggests that THE END OF THE LINE possesses qualities beyond its presentation of what will to many audiences be just yet another ecological worry. However, Rupert Murray's film manages to transcend the documentary genre with a sense of otherworldly imagery that gives audiences a stern reminder of what might be lost, if his pessimistic views are indeed correct.
