|WELL SAID, DOUG.|
With most Docs, what you see on-screen is culled from hours and hours of interviews and footage, with the best and most relevant bits edited into a streamlined presentation. With Leviathan, it honestly felt like the director used every bit of the footage that he shot to make the whole thing longer, in an effort to make it seem more comprehensive and exhaustive. Instead, it ends up being far more exhausting than anything else.
There's a lot of good stuff to be had here, it's just buried in so much repetition and filler that it ends up being too much and too unfocused to fully enjoy.
|THIS GUY WAS COOL. WHOEVER HE WAS.|
|IT'S ALWAYS GOOD SEEING ANDREW ROBINSON THOUGH.|
