  3. Renton47's rating of the film Approaching the Elephant

    YES! A terrific depiction of ideology in practice that ultimately turns into a potential tragedy about how some pigheaded beliefs in equality let one child down. So many people misdiagnose the barriers that keep us apart as being the barriers which keep us unequal and unhappy. I have kind of a naive optimism in anarchy but I always expected it would look exactly like this.

  4. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film Approaching the Elephant

    I get that this documentary is trying to present a neutral perspective of its subject matter. But, that unobtrusive approach leaves the film unfocused and lacking in depth and intimacy. There are questions I feel needed to be asked (about the program's effectiveness, about the children's development, etc.), and those questions just aren't thoroughly examined.
