Your Mommy Kills Animals Reviews

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

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

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.

With a subject that holds as much venom as this one does, Mommy remains amazingly poised.

David Martosko, of the Center for Consumer Freedom, carries the film's obscured theme that "morality" is a religious-based ploy used by all sides of the animal abuse debate that lead the FBI to rank animal-rights activists as the No.1 terrorist threat in

Powerful, angry and bizarre documentary.

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

Your Mommy Kills Animals will more than likely still draw you in with its unbiased approach -- and, no matter where you stand on the issue of animals, you will definitely learn a lot about people.

Jim Hemphill

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.

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

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.
