Eyeball To Eyeball

USA / UK, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Eyeball To Eyeball - The Many Obsessions of Errol Morris)

Director: Errol Morris

Any deep-sea fisherman will tell you he'd rather fall overboard into a shark feeding frenzy than a school of squid. Like Pirhana, these tentacled killers can strip a person to the bone in moments. Clyde Roper, on the other hand, claims he wouldn't mind being crushed by a giant squid if it allowed him fifteen seconds to study the monster up close Morris unravels myth from reality in the examination of a man obsessed with beasts from the deep.
