RBCrickmar's rating of the film Killer of Sheep

A film quite unlike any other that you'll see, with a keen eye for ways of using reverse tracking for profound dramatic effect - isolation within family and community. This is crisply shot in b&w, yet is hampered by the poor quality of some of the performances. Has a deeply unsettling way with casual violence - kids torture one another, a brother abuses his kid sister, a father beats his boys, etc.
