    Just watched. Yeah, sure it is contrived. Loved it nevertheless.

    I didn’t see the big deal on his interactions with the octopus. It’s one thing to harass and another to interact with something that wants to do the same with you.

    My first thought was of introspection and taking stock of one's life. My second thought after watching him handle and impose himself on the marine life was "please, leave the livestock alone. " (Sorry, shamelessly adapted from another movie :popcorn::oops: :))

    Loved, loved, loved this movie. The interaction/relationship of the octopus with Craig Foster is incredibly stimulating. I now want to have an extended hangout around the next octopus I see. I’ll sure look for a small hole in nearby shells for sure, which will have new meaning! Great movie and would recommend it for sure!!

    And because it didn't, it was just a horrible documentary. I didn't even finish watching it. Had to turn it off.
