Critic Reviews for We the Animals
Somehow... Zagar has found a way to let the film's scenes surface and recede the way memories do.
"We the Animals" unfolds almost as a dream, albeit one that never shies away from the often hopeless reality of what it's like to grow up poor in America.
On one level... "We the Animals" is a classic coming-of age tale; on another, it's a near perfect depiction of the emotional damage that can result from economic insecurity.
Zagar seems to lack a coherent directorial perspective on Torres' story; he mistakes vérité-style handheld and frequent close-ups (mostly captured with wide-angle lenses) for genuine intimacy and engagement.
Zagar is a documentarian at heart, and it shows: The film is a closely, compassionately observed study of a boyhood that's otherwise largely unsupervised.
