The Kraken within after a night with the Leviathan. Stormy seas manned by thick men wielding big chains and hellacious power winches. Footage like drowning as a roar of seagulls swarms the tilings of sea-mining. Heads and guts unmarketable, discardable.

Leviathan is a documentary of sorts, a pure 87 minutes of shaky, high-contrast footage with scratchy audio that captures everything about human work that isn’t my 9-5 on a wireless keyboard. Roaring seas, dredging of seafloors and onboard knifing of scallops and other creatures. Brutality for a paycheck.

The Kraken is some Caribbean elixer poured over a spoonful of Ben & Jerrisian vanilla as a screen blasts chart-topping mainstream entertainment and headphones boom sounds of the most manufactured appeal. Sounds reminiscent of mini coopers in Madrid, cavernous clubs in Shanghai. The indulgence rarely visited.

In home.
