Every Lady Needs A Stallion
16 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

The title of this film could be better but as soon as you can get pass that it's really an excellent film. As a documentary it does its job of promoting its cause while never making you feel like you are force-fed information. In part this is due to the amazing cinematography and ease of watching. The movie has a very relaxed element, you can sit back and kick up your feet, and before you know it you forget you're in the theater until you hear laughter. At first glance the movie seems very vague and leaves you wondering where the storyline is going but it evolves quickly and has many subtleties making it a very moving piece. By the end of the film you feel connected to all the characters and even animals on a personal level. It leaves you yearning for more.
