Mostly this is just an enjoyable 90 odd minutes of very attractive chickens and their dedicated owners. Oh and that cockerel having a nice time in front of a hairdryer.
While competitive chicken showing in New Zealand may seem pretty niche, the story of human obsession is universal and, in Martinov's hands, very accessible.
Director Slavko Martinov captures everything with humour and respect, and his coverage of an unfortunately painful battle for the future of the club adds a keen poignancy.
Pecking Order has all the right ingredients to make a delicious documentary omelette, but it still comes out slightly undercooked... Still, there's nothing Kiwi audiences like more than scratching and pecking around to unearth the perfect local eccentric
If you think anything to do with chickens is automatically funny, you'll have a ball, but personally, I found director Slavko Martinov's cutesy musical choices and winking tone more than a little wearying.
Slavko Martinov's film also speaks to the very real value of community groups and the trickiness in maintaining traditional interests in the 21st century.
This is quirkily compulsive viewing.
There's not much drama, but I was amused, engaged and touched by the goings-on at the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club.
This pun-filled film unfolds with affection and features a gallery of quirky characters from veteran chairman Doug to 12-year-old novice Rhys. A real delight.
An absolutely hilarious and very pointed exploration of politics and culture on the smallest possible scale. And a lot of good-lookin' chickens.
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of competitive poultry pageantry.
A sufficiently engaging delve into a niche interest and those who feel defined by it. But one which, narratively at least, backs the wrong gamecock.
