IMAX: Into The Deep (DVD)
Unlike The Living Sea, its Oscar-nominated predecessor, IMAX's Into the Deep confines itself to one location--the Channel Islands off the coast of California. But what a location it is! Directed by Howard Hall and narrated by actress Kate Nelligan, this exquisitely shot feature follows a number of the colorful creatures who live among the area's kelp beds as they build their living quarters, fight to protect them, mate, and die. Some of the more notable sequences include the aggressive mating dance of the fiery Garibaldi fish, the arduous molting of a lobster, and the sophisticated synchronized movements of a school of silvery Spanish mackerel that sparkle and shine in the sunlight streaming in from above.
