About the Movie
Across walls, fences, and alleys, rats not only expose our boundaries of separation but make homes in them. "Rat Film" is a feature-length documentary that uses the rat—as well as the humans that love them, live with them, and kill them—to explore the history of Baltimore. "There's never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it's always been a people problem".

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Equal parts disturbing and humorous, informative and bizarre, "Rat Film" is a brilliantly imaginative and formally experimental essay on how Baltimore has dealt with its rat problem and manipulated its black population.
Fresh: [An] electrifying cinematic essay that asks us to reconsider a lot more than a maligned species.
Fresh: It takes a certain kind of nerve for a director to entitle his debut feature-length work Rat Film, but there's much more to Theo Anthony's richly informative essay on the planet's most-maligned critters than its bluntly confrontational moniker.
Fresh: What exactly does it all mean? I'm not sure, but it does make for a disturbing and occasionally absorbing watch.
