Storyline

Shockingly relevant to today, the film probes the use of animals as entertainment, as pets, for food, for scientific and military research. Stuffed with footage never before shown, the film is laced with deliciously ironic extracts of government films and newsreels. The makers had unprecedented access, to Roger Ulrich for example, a noted psychologist whose career was built on experimenting on primates until his life took an astonishing turn...

~ awesome expose. everyone must see this film. ~
24 November 2004 | by (nyc) – See all my reviews

This is the most powerful and all-encompassing expose on the animal exploiting industries (including the meat, dairy, fur, and vivisection industries) I have seen to date. It (unfortunately) remains as valid today as it was over twenty years ago when it was made. This is the film that definitively turned me into a vegetarian. Most people choose to remain selectively ignorant about these issues because they are too painful and upsetting to look at. Doesn't that suggest that maybe there is something inherently WRONG with the way in which we treat animals in our society? A must-see.
