Well worth watching
23 May 2019 | by horst69See all my reviews

As a documentary, I find this film outstanding .

It's not judging yet observing closely, it is raw, yet well filmed and edited to create an intimate protrayal of the subjects .

As for the topic of trophy hunting in general, and what's going on in Africa in particular, I'm not a fan to say the least .

But even though the great white hunter isn't the brightest candle on the cake, and the pretenious Alpha act of an overweight middle aged American gets old quickly, I couldn't even dislike him . That's how balanced this documentary is .

It's not a scientific approach to the issue , you'd have to look elsewhere for that ; it rather follows and watches closely to engross the viewer and allow him to come to his own conclusions .
