'Your Mommy Kills Animals': A Sobering Doc

Maui Time | June 11, 2007
The title of Curt Johnson's sobering documentary comes from the title of a PETA-published propaganda "comic book" for children, and relates to revelations about the hypocritical corporation (PETA) that itself killed "85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 in Virginia." Interviews with animal-rights activists from such organizations as Greenpeace, the Animal Defense League, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and militant groups like the Animal Liberation Front and Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, contribute to a boisterous debate over what actions should be taken against organizations that abuse animals. David Martosko, of the Center for Consumer Freedom, carries the film's obscured theme that "morality" is a religious-based ploy used by all sides of the animal abuse debate that lead the FBI to rank animal-rights activists as the No.1 terrorist threat in America.

Not Rated, 106 mins. (B-)
