Critic Reviews for The Hunting Ground
An important film to see for parents, students and anyone involved with academia.
When and where your frustration and anger boil over while watching "The Hunting Ground" is an individual experience, one that will be different for everyone who sees it.
Too few women (and men) have too little chance to share their stories. Dick's film is a valuable spotlight.
The Hunting Ground qualifies as activist filmmaking. More power to it. You can read all the statistics you want, but there's no substitute for bearing witness - especially in such overwhelming numbers.
Audience Reviews for The Hunting Ground
Haunting, depressing, raw, true, and overwhelmingly large in numbers, "The Hunting Ground is a masterfully crafted Documentary. Following the lives of rape victims on college campuses and diving deep into their stories, was not something I was incredibly keen on viewing, but it works. Whether or not you believe every story, because there are a few questionable cases, as a film, this is one of the most effective Documentaries you will watch about this specific subject. The biggest flaw with this film (which is also it's biggest positive), is that when the statistics for each school come up, you are in awe. They begin with percentages to scare the audience and to make them want to take a stand, but once the percentages go away, the filmmakers come up with a clever way of showing what the police of each town is "not" doing. That hurt the film slightly for me, as that is not the story for them to be focussing on, but rather what is true and can be explained. "The Hunting Ground" is a very unique title for this film and I highly recommend it to anyone college-appropriate or older. This film handles very mature material and I think it is for a specific audience. Terrific documentary.
A testament to a bunch of brave college students and film makers who expose the horrifying lack of support that colleges provide to those who have been raped on their campus. It is an epidemic that is encouraged by the lack of attention paid to the issue by morally bankrupt officials.
Despite some reported issues regarding its credibility, this is a great companion piece to The Invisible War in what concerns institutionalized misogyny and brutality against women (and in this case also men) that go shockingly ignored when the interests of powerful people are involved.
