This is an amazing movie! It shows how animals in our society and around the world suffer needlessly. It not only exposes the horrors of slaughter houses, but also the the fur and leather trade, circuses, animals used for medical research, and much more. The footage in this movie is all actual footage shot in slaughter house (ones for food, fur, and leather), circuses, research labs, fishing boats, and more.
The movie is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, and he does an increadable job. I was impressed with the way he spoke without anger and hatred for the people commiting these atrocities, but with compassion and love for the animals being abused. To quote Woody Harrelson "This is the single most powerful and informative movie about society's treatment of animals".
