The border between viewer and subject is resoundingly breached in Leviathan, which follows a commercial fishing boat from whatever viewpoints it can, be they the hands of a fisherman or a helmet containing a tiny camera as it tumbles across the deck. Directorial super-duo Taylor and Paravel take the narrative of a nature documentary deep into uncharted waters, leaving us orphaned from the idea of a storyteller, even as the story itselfwhich roams through the daily lives of fishermen, ethical issues in the industry and ecosystems far out at seabears us forward helplessly in its net. The most groundbreaking work of cinema in decades, the documentary form will never be the same after Leviathan.
