A Remarkable, Important Film
28 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The side of animal activism that you never see -- the fact that the majority of activists are non-violent, intelligent, compassionate people -- is portrayed in this film with astounding effect. This well-balanced story of the efforts of the activists, coupled with a glimpse behind the scenes of the factory farming and fur industries, as well as in overwhelmingly useless, yet undeniably horrific, animal research labs, will leave anyone with a conscience writing their legislators for change.

The wake-up call that "Fast Food Nation" provides for a country steeped in a drive-through- nutrition mentality, "Behind The Mask" does for a society in love with its fur-trimmed boots, burgers, and shampoo needlessly tested on an animal in shockingly inhumane, unrealistic conditions, after which the animal was tossed -- sometimes literally -- into the garbage.

A critical question posited by this film is this: If the lucrative and woefully ungoverned businesses of animal research and factory farming have nothing to hide, why is it possible to witness the activities performed there only by stealth?

In a thinking society, this film would have wide distribution. Let's hope that happens.
