Much like that other one about global warming, The End of the Line is a documentary aimed to inform a generally unaware public of a man-made environmental crisis, which in this case just happens to be the impending extinction of edible sea life. The good news? No more cod liver oil! The downside? Global catastrophe.

If you know anything about the ocean’s current situation, then TEOTL won’t provide any major revelations (fish populations are almost exhausted, people continue to overfish, laws put into effect to prevent this aren’t enforced, yadda yadda yadda), and it ends on a Captain Planet–y The Power Is Yours! kind of note. But at only 80 minutes, it’s worth a view. The film has an extremely limited domestic release, so this might be one you’ll have to get from Netflix.
