Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A dark but never depressing look at a couple in love with each other and with drugs, Animals is a strong independent film with a powerful story and two impressive central performances. With shades of Larry Clark’s Kids (without the seedier voyeuristic edge), it’s amazing how uplifting this film is at times, how positive it’s message of love can be even when rock bottom is hit. So certainly not for everyone but a real gem of a film nonetheless.
