Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

"Zoo" is an extraordinary glimpse into the life of a seemingly normal Seattle family man whose secret sexual appetites led to his shocking death. The film explores the ensuing media coverage and public outcry that uncovered a secret community of zoophiles, who call themselves "zoos." This expressionistic rendering of how apparently upstanding citizens banded together and videotaped their journey into the most taboo realms of behavior, reveals the enormous gulf between what we appear to be and who we really are.

Audience Reviews for Zoo

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
