Eco-Pirate: The Story of Paul Watson

This film about one of Greenpeace’s original members and his subsequent break-out to operate as an eco-warrior and ocean vigilante is a perfect mix of cult of personality, dramatic sea voyages and the worthy cause of fighting for the planet.  Favouring direct action, including ramming or scuttling whaling ships, over non-violent witnessing and protest, Watson comes across as an uncompromisingly principled activist whose interpersonal relationships are casualties of his own war.
