Narrator: We tell ourselves that they have lived good lives and in the end they don't know what's coming and don't feel a thing. But they do. In their final hours, minutes and seconds there is always fear. There is always pain. The smells of blood. The screaming of other members of their species with whom they've shared their lives. Never a willingness or desire to die, but rather a desperation to live. A frantic fight to their last breath. And never are they shown mercy or kindness. Instead, mocked, ...

Could be groundbreaking in the Animal Rights movement!
20 July 2018 | by HellmantSee all my reviews

'DOMINION': Five Stars (Out of Five)

The new Animal Rights documentary exposing the horrific truths of the animal agriculture industry. It was written and directed by Chris Delforce, who also performed both duties on the 2014 critically acclaimed Australian pig farming documentary 'LUCENT'. The movie is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix (who also famously narrated the 2005 Animal Rights documentary classic 'EARTHLINGS'), Rooney Mara, Sia, Sadie Sink, Katherine von Drachenberg and Delforce himself. I think the film is an absolute masterpiece, that needs to be seen by all!

Delforce and his crew use drones, and handheld cameras (including many hidden ones) to capture the horrors of the modern animal agriculture industry. He explores how different animals are used for food, entertainment, research and clothing, while also posing questions of the morality of using animals in these ways. The film also details how many different types of animals are abused in their own different unique ways, while Phoenix and others narrate this information. The title of course comes from humankind's belief that we have dominion over non-human animals.

The movie is extremely comprehensive and educational. For those who know very little about animal agriculture, this film should blow them away. I'd say it's even more thorough, in it's detailed information, than 'EARTHLINGS'. I don't think it's quite as classic as that all-time masterpiece though (in my opinion). It is just as hard to watch though, and emotionally shocking, so of course it'll be really hard to get non-vegans to watch it too. If they can be talked into it though, I think this movie could be groundbreaking in that movement. It's arguably one of the most important films ever made (in my opinion at least).
