Turns out Australia's national icon is one mightily maligned marsupial, as revealed by the eye-opening investigative documentary "Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story."
The filmmakers are determined to sound a wake-up siren, and they blast it here with extra strength.
Has the potential to help bring kangaroo welfare and management into much sharper focus in Australia and internationally.
Kangaroo is a sobering depiction of how deep cultural divides affect the future of a species, even one so seemingly ubiquitous and resilient.
In the end, Kangaroo is the kind of advocacy film that's most likely to convince you if you already believe.
Balanced it is not, but Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story proves to be a bluntly effective, in a pry-your-eyes-open-with-a-crowbar kind of way, piece of animal welfare advocacy.
The film has already stirred much heat and noise, with the filmmakers swearing black-and-blue that they've nailed their research while farmers call in to talkback radio complaining how their paddocks are overrun with roos.
Eye-opening, revelatory, at times jaw-dropping, and a call to action.
It's not necessary to believe every claim in the film, which inclines towards an animal liberation stance, but there's enough to make you weep for this unique species.
A substandard documentary on our nation's complicated relationship with the kangaroo disappoints on several levels.
The filmmakers talk to people on both sides of the argument, and people who are in-between. Everyone gets a fair say.
Like The Cove or Blackfish, Kangaroo is a muckraking work that advocates a clear position for better management and treatment of Australia's kangaroos.
