‘Leviathan’ And Other Top Docs to Watch At Home This Week


Included in last week’s Nonfics Home Picks for its iTunes debut, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel‘s sensory ethnography film about life of all kinds on and around a fishing boat is now even more recommended in its Blu-ray release.

This is one of those docs that you either need to see on the big screen or with as big a TV or monitor as you can get and in the highest quality format available. It’s not just a passive viewing experience of pretty images, either. Leviathan is a puzzle for the eyes and the mind and a stunning achievement of cinematographic reality.

I’ll say it for the billionth time, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Special features include an essay by French critic Cyril Neyrat and a new short film titled Still Life / Nature Morte, which is 30 more minutes of the galley footage of fisherman watching TV.
