Critics Consensus

While a marginally fascinating look at a taboo subject, Zoo is bogged down by its overly artistic presentation.

    You have to see it to believe it

    Zoo doesn't exactly deal with the subject of bestiality. Instead it provides testimony of the events leading up to a mans death via penetration by a horse. It is an expose on the lives of a select group of men that feel more connected with animals than they do humans. These are not the sick weirdos you'd expect. They are normal and seemingly intelligent men. The film is shot as a beautiful reconstruction. Every scene is lit perfectly and has a dream like quality. It results in a film that you wish had been played as a fictional narrative. The film does not take shots at anyone and is a genuine attempt to understand these men and have them tell their story.

    you probably don't want to watch this. it's well made but extremely disturbing. this is animal abuse no matter what these freaks may claim; they are no better than rapists and child molesters; sick

    [font=Century Gothic]"Zoo" is a provocative documentary about an unnamed engineer(here known as Mr. Hands") who died after a sexual act with a horse. He was part of a group of otherwise lonely men who had met over the internet where they talked about their shared obsession in zoophilia which is a sexual attraction to other species.(Mr. Hands had the closest to a normal life, being divorced with a child.) While using mostly recreations, the documentary successfully defuses the sensationalistic aspects of the story with an elliptical approach that relies not only on the testimony from an animal rescue worker who was on the scene afterward but also from three pseudonymous participants.(That having been said. Was it absolutely necessary to show how a horse is gelded?) The exquisite cinematography perfectly captures the shadow world that these men inhabit. [/font]
