Prepare to be underwhelmed
1 December 2018 | by yawl-01930See all my reviews

I live in the states and therefore I knew zero about this animal until I watched this...docu-whatever-you-want-to-call-it...and now I know approximately .0001 % more than that. This amateur attempt at a documentary is a haphazard, poorly realized & edited mess that lacked a readily identifiable, unifying theme. This film should be shown to prospective film students so they can learn what not to do. I especially disliked: 1 being told that the animal was incredibly elusive one moment...and that it was living right on people's doorsteps the next, 2 the tight shot of a wildlife enthusiast who apparently had a shot of one (or many? I never figured it out) in the wild- scrolling through blank and icon filled pages in the menu of her automatic wildlife camera when I wanted more than anything at that point to see one of the photos she was talking about, 3 finding out who one of the main interview subjects was fully three quarters of the way through the production. It was so bad that I was compelled to write this review about a film that no amount of reviews from the friends and family of the filmmaker can possibly hope to save from the oblivion of time. I hated watching it because it was painful to do so and I was stunned at how bad it was....that is until I found out it was financed to some extent via indigogo and then EVERYTHING suddenly fell into place.
