Documentary Catch Up: 'Project Nim' is Downright Unsettling

22 November 2011 10:12 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have started digging through the pile of screeners I've been receiving and I started with one of the short-listed Oscar docs I had not seen, James Marsh's Project Nim, a film that essentially documents the real-life version of what you saw in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, only Nim never actually starts talking and the apes never "rise" against their human oppressors. However, you do end up hating the people and their treatment of these animals and only begin to feel good when you hear them tell stories of how they were scratched and/or bitten. Project Nim began in the early '70s as a young chimpanzee is the seventh of his mother's children to be taken from her, this stat alone is enough to rip at your heart and it happens inside the film's first three minutes. From there we watch as Columbia professor »
