I have. I thought I would have trouble watching it, but it’s well done, and sucks you in. Don’t get me wrong, parts of it are quite disturbing and distressing. But I think it has a very important message.

I’m familiar with it, but my heart couldn’t stand to watch the bloody slaughter of all those dolphins.

I saw the snippet at the Academy Awards and it kept me from sleeping for weeks.
I can’t bring myself to watch it, but I did read up on it and try to keep up with efforts of the activists. It’s pretty horrible.
