A movie like this forces me to confront my own beliefs. Or at the very least examine my behavior. I wouldn't buy cosmetics that are tested on animals, but what about drugs. I mostly only take the occasional pain reliever or cold medicine. But those were probably tested on animals. I would never deny anyone life-saving medicine because it's tested on animals.
How about food? I only buy organic eggs because producing conventional eggs amounts to chicken torture. But I still eat meat, and most of the time it's not organic meat. It was probably raised in a CAFO, or concentrated animal feeding operation. Those places are bad for the animals, the earth and any people who live nearby.
So I sit and watch this movie and cringe at the suffering of animals, but then I have to realize that I share some guilt in causing it.
Perhaps I was thinking too much, and should have just paid attention to the entertainment value of the movie?
