The face of an ostrich is a marvelous thing. So is the fur on certain deer’s behinds. Or the angles of a hyena’s legs. All these things can be fully appreciated in this talk-free documentary shot at a zoo. Some scenes are deeply sad—proud zebras desperately bumping their gorgeous patterns against the edges of a cage, for instance. But this is not a protest, it’s something harder. A taxidermist goes about his cold trade at the heart of the movie, as if to suggest that humanity as a whole has a painfully shallow approach to the rest of the animal world. (JEN GRAVES)
