I am Extremely Excited to watch this Movie about a Great ManReviewed bypinkiepink-73782Vote: 10/10

This Man was part of my childhood learning experience. I remember watching his TV show growing up in the 70's and 80's. I watched in total amazement as he shared with Me/Us his experiences. He explored so many truly wonderful unique places all over the Globe. I miss him. We need to boycott the "JUNK" that Poisons the young peoples/childrens brains and replace television with shows like Jacques Cousteau. This Man showed me the World is truly an "OYSTER". I cannot emphasize enough on how Mr. Cousteau helped open and mold my young mind as to what really matters in our World and that Nothing is impossible. He is a Pioneer of ALL the Beauties on this Gloriously Mysterious Planet..I can see myself in my Minds eyes on how excited I would be anticipating his documentaries. His Son and Daughter do him Proud following where He sadly left off when he passed..Bring back the Cousteau's of this Earth and get rid of the garbage that rents space in the brains of everyones these days..

Greetings again from the darkness. For anyone under age 35, it may be difficult to imagine a world where high-definition cameras don't blanket every nook and cranny of our planet. These days, there are multiple channels serving up nature and oceanic documentaries, many with stunningly clear and colorful underwater photography. Each of these owe a debt of gratitude to Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and documentarian Liz Garbus is here to make sure we all know it.

Jacques Cousteau trained as a Navy pilot, but a serious accident drove him to swimming as therapy for his broken body. It's there where he became enamored with free-diving and spear-fishing, and Ms. Garbus includes some archival video clips to show those early days. He was soon driven to dive deeper and stay under longer, which led him to co-invent the regulator for Aqua-lung, the early device that eventually allowed for scuba diving and breathing underwater. His co-inventor happened to be the father of his wife Simone, whom he married in 1937. Simone, along with their two sons, spent a great deal of time on the Calypso. The crew referred to her as "The Sheperdess".

This unique underwater access meant Cousteau and his cohorts could perform research never before imagined. Soon they had re-commissioned a boat as "Calypso" and turned documenting the sea into their mission. Cousteau's love of cinema meant that he had to develop a camera that would function underwater so he could film all activities. In fact, it's Cousteau's own video archives that make up much of the clips used by Ms. Garbus here. In 1956, Cousteau and young French filmmaker, Louis Malle, finished their film, THE SILENT WORLD, and the underwater photography was so groundbreaking that the film won the prestigious Palm d'Or at Cannes, and the Oscar for Best Documentary. Cousteau claimed his films were not documentaries, but rather "true action stories". Malle, of course, went on to direct such acclaimed films as ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS (1958), ATLANTIC CITY (1980), and Au Revoir les Enfants (1987).

Ms. Garbus does a nice job of chronicling Cousteau's work, and for the many of us who were dedicated followers of his TV series, "The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau", that red stocking cap remains a familiar visual. Actor Vincent Cassel reads passages from Cousteau's journals, and we learn that "Diving is the most fabulous distraction you can imagine", and that he was "miserable" out of the water. This matters because he transformed from delivering spell-binding underwater photography to an activist and educator, trying to make the world understand how humanity was destroying the ecosystem and what that meant to our world. All of today's discourse on the topic was indeed started by Cousteau, who proclaimed, "You protect what you love."Liz Garbus is one of our most talented documentarians, as evidenced by her work in such films as WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE, 2015 and THE FARM: ANGOLA, USA, 1998, and ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY, 2020. The first two earned her Oscar nominations, and here she pays tribute to Jacques Cousteau - an explorer, researcher, filmmaker, and activist. She focuses on his professional life, and also touches on his tangled personal life - one that resulted in two additional kids (producers of this film) with Francine (while he was married to Simone), one of the divers on Calypso. We learn of the tragedy in Cousteau's life, and that he and his crew discovered the oil in the Persian Gulf while raising funds for their expeditions. Cousteau is shown at the Earth Summit in 1992, where he is treated as an international rock star. Ms. Garbus' film shows how Cousteau's work helped educate us as he tried to make the world a better place, by giving us an appreciation of the underwater world he so treasured.

Opening in theaters on October 22, 2021.

Who's the man in the red beanie hat?Reviewed byCinemaSerfVote: 7/10

For folks used to watching the beautiful undersea imagery from the likes of the "Blue Planet" (2001) or it's 2017 sequel, this might seem a little bit unremarkable - but if you watch this documentary on this visionary man, you will soon realise that he and his "oceanic musketeers" were the source of so much of the basic building blocks upon which the latter programmes are based. From designing the "Aqualung" to pioneering waterproof cameras, this Frenchman comes across here as a forward thinking and inspirational figure. Of course he had flaws - much of what he did was funded by and produced for the oil industry, but this film serves to illustrate just how little even those closest to the ocean environment understood about human impact on that space, and gradually how his increasing awareness became the vehicle for a global attempt to profoundly change attitudes towards the seas. His life was not without it's struggles - personal and professional, and though the film does reflect those, it doesn't dwell on them: this is essentially an interesting and compelling story of a man well ahead of the curve. The photography is astonishing; not so much the beautiful underwater stuff, but of his early life - he clearly was a film maker long before anyone saw commercial returns from such ventures. It's let down a bit by the nature of the production. It uses a lot of out-of-vision commentaries and interviews which are sometimes quite hard to follow, and the contemporaneous chronology of the narrative means we don't really get any retrospective, objective, sense from his peers as to his achievements or his vision. Still, for many of us who remember his television series of the 1970s, thus film is an interesting reminder of our time on the "Calypso". A time that clearly demonstrates that pollution and climate change issues have been an high profile issue - and have fallen on many a deaf ear - for many, many years.
