Your Mommy Kills Animals lays things out with historical perspective, tracing the roots of both the animal welfare movement and animals rights activism to England.

Johnson's not pushing buttons just for the sake of attention-getting, he's revealing just how hopelessly complicated the issue has grown.

There's not an objective one [celebrity] in the lot. I love 'em all. Nor is there an objective moment in this cinematic diatribe. And I love it, too.

That one can't quite decide if these charming men are heroes or villains is a mark of Johnson's calm, even approach to an issue seemingly fueled by emotions run amok.

It isn't only organization that the mildly anarchic Your Mommy Kills Animals sorely lacks, it's also a sufficient number of sources.

[A] snappily edited, shockingly well balanced (and occasionally gruesome) overview.
August 15, 2007
Hard to beat that title, ain't it?

August 14, 2007
Can't commit to an overview of the movement by looking at three groups or stick with the trial of the "SHAC 7." So an intriguing but too short tour of animal-rights issues is interrupted by a flatly chronicled court case.
August 6, 2007
It's impossible to watch without having your point of view challenged - no matter which side of the issue you're on.

It lets you off dizzy and confused, whereas the best documentaries leave you feeling that you've come to a settled perspective on a subject.

Those on both sides of the animal rights issue will find much to fume over in ... Curt Johnson's in-depth, eye-opening examination of the movement.

Couldn't have arrived at a more timely moment, given the recent arrest of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick on federal charges for hanging, drowning, electrocuting and beating dogs to death.

July 20, 2007
It's the best kind of documentary, in that if you're a thinking person it is nearly impossible to watch the movie without having your point of view challenged and questioned.

The result, admittedly, is a bit of a din. But it's certainly interesting.
