Critic Reviews for Rat Film
Artfully assembled and often entertaining, the diverse whole nonetheless doesn't quite gel, with the film finally coming off as somewhat pretentious and heavy-handed.
Though Theo Anthony's eclectic documentary Rat Film has the urban-dwelling rodent on its mind, it treats rats not as a subject but as a microcosm for systemic injustice.
[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.
