Extremely moving, though provoking and unassuming film.
29 December 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I would recommend watching this documentary to anyone. It's an hour and a half out of your time, but in my humble view, it will change your outlook for ever.

Mark Devries really hits the nail on the head with Speciesism. He is not confrontational nor condescending. This endears you to him from the first and therefore you are more open to the findings of the documentary as you feel as if he also is on the road to these discoveries.

And these discoveries, which are so undisputable, will force you to think and force you to assess the way we are doing things. This is what a successful documentary should make you do and in this way it is a very successful documentary.
