One of the most raved about docs on the festival circuit this year (It currently holds an A- from 23 critics on Criticwire) is "Leviathan," from filmmakers Vérena Paravel and Lucien Castain-Taylor, respectively the acclaimed director's of 2010's "Foreign Parts" and 2009's sheepherding doc "Sweetgrass."

A portrait of a commercial fishing trawler off the Massachusetts coast, the film was shot on a multitude of small, waterproof cameras tethered to the fisherman or placed around the deck and in the water. You can check out a glimpse of the results below.

"Leviathan" opens March 1st at the IFC Center in New York, followed by a limited nationwide release.
