At the Edge of the World

Directed By: Dan Stone


Last seen in Sharkwater, this time the crew of the pirate ship “Sea Shepherd” are trolling through Antarctica, looking to disrupt the Japanese whaling fleet. Using tactics at best described as hostile, they are striving to end the whaling in these international waters, using any means at their disposal (including the infamous “can opener” welded to their side, meant to rip open enemy ships).

In this meandering doc, however, we see an eager, zealot-like crew hankering for conflict, but quick to sniffle in the face of danger. Rising the pirate flag, they still expect the maritime code to be upheld in times of distress. It’s all a bit polemical and boring, in the end, but there are enough pretty visuals of the Arctic to almost make the journey worthwhile.
