I was surprised you didn't post the Batman clip. That was the best "who are you?" of 2012.

I think the only animal cruelty in this thread is the shark, which has been jumped repetitively.

I guess I've lost track of where this thread is going too!

My intention when I conceived of it wasn't to draw attention to the policies of Rian Jefferson as a director, per se. Then again, what was I expecting when I entered this den of supporters! (Count me among that number, btw.) That said, I would still like you to think about this: What is a director if not the sum of his choices, moral, filmic, etc.?

What I seem to have accomplished is what I intended. To turn the tide of this forum away from silly debates on things like Hitler towards a serious effort at addressing the very key issue of animal cruelty in the movies we love.

Leach, you seem to be the resident go-to man on cinematic lore. Can you think of any other films with animal cruelty themes or scenes off the top of your head? Maybe you can create a list we can all add to.

Thanks for you continued support. I do appreciate it.

I thought he was vice president under Quentin Fillmore.

I'm pretty sure Michael Haneke cut a chicken's head off once.

Jurassic Park portrayed lizards irresponsibly. Milo and Otis. Balto. Flipper. Free Willy. Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home. Free Willy 3: The Rescue. March of the Penguins. Air Bud. Air Bud: Golden Receiver. Air Bud Spikes Back. Air Bud: World Pup. Hidalgo. Harry and Tonto. Mighty Joe Young. Operation Dumbo Drop. Old Yeller. Babe. Babe: Pig in the City. Beverley Hills Chihuahua. Snakes on a Plane. Snakes on a Train.

I'm pretty sure a girl raped a unicorn in Louis Malle's Black Moon, although it might have been the other way around.

Steven Spielberg killed a horse in a war. Sergei Eisenstein killed a whole rack of zebras in a revolution. Werner Herzog once used slave labor and thusly slave animals. Francis Ford Coppola killed a horse for real.

"The Isle"_Ki-duk Kim_2000_Korea
has some queasy stuff with fish & frogs, though to his credit the director said that the
crew did eat the fish afterward. aside from that this is a very good movie.

Good point, Leach. Why wouldn't they eat the fish?

If anyone is interested, I believe I've finally tracked down a link to that scene with Gobo, so you can see for yourselves who bears responsibility. I just hope I haven't jaded you yet!

Dear LB -
you appear to be saying that the fictional [filmic] portrayal of violence, especially in regard to animals, is a BAD THING.
this seems to me a confused and irrational viewpoint. do you have the same reservations about the documentary
depiction of violence toward animals, or do you make a distinction between fictional and non-fictional portrayals?
sincerely,
neil.
