Beautifully shot but jesus christ what a bunch of opportunistic motherfuckery. The filmmakers earn not one ounce of trust, so when they show you dead dogs, we have no reason to think they didn't kill them or place them there because they've gone out of their way to prove that they have no scruples about the killing of animals. Hogwash.
