Hollywood Reporter's review of Diving Deep

“The tightly paced doc (editing by Brent Sumner) covers a good deal of ground in a swift 80 minutes. DeGruy was born in Mobile, Alabama, and grew up intrigued by the aquatic life of the bayou. His family members testify to his obsessions, though his children acknowledge that they sometimes felt secondary to his underwater work. He became an eloquent spokesman for the wonders of the deep, appearing at many conferences throughout his life. The film also acknowledges, however, that he may have possessed an excessive lust for risk and danger. On one adventure swimming with sharks, one of the creatures took a bite out of his arm that left him scarred for the rest of his life.”
