Paul and I recently watched March of the Penguins. It was perhaps the most gripping animal documentary I’ve ever seen, simply due to the amazing harshness of the conditions under which the penguins live. (The extra documentary on the DVD about the filming of the movie is also well worth watching.) Although this might sound odd, the movie gave me a new appreciation for the awesome power of human reason and choice via its concrete image of the unbearable harshness of a life wholly governed by instinct.
