Audience Reviews for Blue Water, White Death

Blue Water, White Death (1971) C-99m. ??? 1/2 D: Peter Gimbel, James Lipscomb. Fascinating documentary on one of the sea's most dangerous creatures, the Great White shark; terrifying underwater footage in vivid, underrated movie. Also interesting to note this was the first "shark movie", even before Steven Spielberg's JAWS in 1975.

Pioneers in shark research this quasi-doco-Steve Zissou film is an insight into 70s mindsets and aesthetics. The last 10 minutes really is worth waiting for. I envy their pioneering aquatic work captured on film, unfortunately not their musical shipmate nor their 70s ethics.

Blue Water White Death is an amazing documentary that follows divers as they search for great white sharks. The footage of the great white sharks is remarkable and its easy to see why the Taylors were influential on Jaws.
