Good movie for Larry Summers

::: {.Section1} Tina and I saw “Aliens of the Deep” when we were in San Francisco. We liked it more than Greenspun, but his description of the climax as “big-eyed snails who’ve built themselves an Indian casino” is perfect:

James Cameron, director of the movie Titanic, goes 3000' to 10,000' down into the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to film the unusual forms of life living next to thermal vents.  Precious few details are offered about the animals in question…. no math is done and you never learn anything about the phenomenon studied except "this is really cool" or "this is really beautiful".
