Great Documentary!
22 November 2013 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

Mark Devries did a fantastic job in this documentary. I've seen numerous animal rights documentaries, and this one was quite different. From the beginning he takes the view of everyday people who are hesitant to believe the horrors that happen to animals, or who refuse to grasp it, and then he talks to multiple scholars in the field who persuade you throughout the movie that what is happening is wrong. I've been vegan for many years, and parts of this movie continues to pop into my head everyday. This movie has reinforced the feelings I already had and I am even more outraged that the majority of the world continues to see animals as machines for human use. I think it was great, and I plan on showing this movie to many in my community. I hope it has an everlasting impact on how people perceive and treat non-human animals.
