“My Octopus Teacher”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: October 4th, 2020 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

I’ll cut to the chase.

This extraordinary real life film is my favorite of the year.

It bears the Culture Maven’s highest recommendation.

It’s on Netflix. Go watch it. It’s even kid friendly.

In the broadest sense, it’s about a fellow Craig Foster — whom I believe I mistakenly call a naturist instead of a naturalist in my podcast — who takes to diving in a kelp forrest in the Atlantic, off the shore of South Africa.

Where he develops a year long relationship with an octopus.

This is real life, a documentary, not drama or animated fantasy.

It is visually sumptuous.

It is instructional.

It is emotive.
