Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Schiffli shoots in a fluid style, tweaking colors and focus to register changes in perception and feeling.
Fresh: Dastmalchian and Shaw are thoroughly convincing both as vividly drawn, emotionally complex individuals, and as a couple inextricably bound by addiction and enabling. Among the well-cast supporting players, John Heard makes the most significant impact.
Fresh: It's gritty and grim, but "Animals" is also a gripping portrait of young junkies in love.
Rotten: The couple's doomed romance feels familiar from numerous other films about addiction, and the movie is downright bad whenever it aspires to visual poetry.
Such a good movie!!
This movie really surprised me. It was one of the best movies I've seen this year.
The acting on display here is front and center and what I most connected to. A pretty brutal story and subject matter - yes it's somewhat depressing - and normally I need something more genre oriented to get me through, but this held it's own. Worth checking out if you like dramas or even just independent films in general. Well executed.
A love story, told through the context of addiction. Jude and Bobbie are in constant search of their next fix, but you can't help but root for them, as a couple. This film humanizes the agony of addiction.
