The Bay (2012)

Barry Levinson’s The Bay (2012) in one of the better “found footage” and docu-eco-thriller films I’ve seen in the last few years.  A young reporter (Kether Donohue) reflects on-line about a mysterious outbreak that impacted a Maryland bay community.  The film assembles and reconstructs smart phone videos, surveillance vids, and other electronic media, unfolding a story about an ecological disaster emanating from pollution on an estuary.   The Bay is smart, creepy, interesting, hip and definitely not for the squeamish.  It’s available now on iTunes streaming.
