Your Mommy Kills Animals lays things out with historical perspective, tracing the roots of both the animal welfare movement and animals rights activism to England.

Johnson's not pushing buttons just for the sake of attention-getting, he's revealing just how hopelessly complicated the issue has grown.

Perhaps the greatest service Johnson does is to turn the event that spurred him to make the film -- the FBI labeling animal rights activists the top domestic terrorist threat -- into a crucial dialogue.

That one can't quite decide if these charming men are heroes or villains is a mark of Johnson's calm, even approach to an issue seemingly fueled by emotions run amok.

Powerful, angry and bizarre documentary.

It isn't only organization that the mildly anarchic Your Mommy Kills Animals sorely lacks, it's also a sufficient number of sources.

Hard to beat that title, ain't it?

Can't commit to an overview of the movement by looking at three groups or stick with the trial of the "SHAC 7." So an intriguing but too short tour of animal-rights issues is interrupted by a flatly chronicled court case.

It's impossible to watch without having your point of view challenged - no matter which side of the issue you're on.

Your Mommy Kills Animals is an eye-opener, raising tough questions about whether the movement deserves such intense scrutiny and punishment by the government.

It lets you off dizzy and confused, whereas the best documentaries leave you feeling that you've come to a settled perspective on a subject.

Those on both sides of the animal rights issue will find much to fume over in ... Curt Johnson's in-depth, eye-opening examination of the movement.

Couldn't have arrived at a more timely moment, given the recent arrest of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick on federal charges for hanging, drowning, electrocuting and beating dogs to death.

It's the best kind of documentary, in that if you're a thinking person it is nearly impossible to watch the movie without having your point of view challenged and questioned.

The result, admittedly, is a bit of a din. But it's certainly interesting.

the most accessible, thorough chronicle of animal rights ever put to film.

What feels like a lack of propaganda makes the film all the more cogent, intelligent, and powerful.
