There’s some really good non-fiction on Netflix. I had to watch LAST BREATH in three sittings to avoid bringing on an anxiety attack, it’s that intense. As told by the survivors, this documentary with reconstructed elements follows a 2012 deep sea dive that goes horribly wrong when one of the three man team becomes trapped underwater and the support ship their diving bell is tethered to drifts off course in a violent storm. Do yourself a favour and don’t look up the ending, then you’re guaranteed to be on the edge of your seat and appropriately short of air. Get terrified by the numbers, be amazed at the kind of outlook you’d have to have on life to do this as a career and swept up in the remarkable story of Chris Lemons, Dave Yuasa and Duncan Alcock compellingly recounted by the men themselves.
