[An] electrifying cinematic essay that asks us to reconsider a lot more than a maligned species.

[Theo] Anthony's feature-length debut careens from scientific observation and historical overview to spiritual inquiry with a freewheeling approach that never ceases to surprise, even as it maintains a cogent thesis.

It takes a certain kind of nerve for a director to entitle his debut feature-length work Rat Film, but there's much more to Theo Anthony's richly informative essay on the planet's most-maligned critters than its bluntly confrontational moniker.

Anthony's film complicates the cultural position of the pest instead of merely exploiting it to bait the squeamish and easily grossed-out.

September 22, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Rat Film is an odd and captivating experience, and its fluid style is its most distinguishing characteristic.

September 15, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Rat Film somehow manages to combine the rigors of good journalism ... with a formal structure that is about as far from journalism as you can get.
