Earthlings (2005)
4.8 · 37

EARTHLINGS is a feature length documentary about humanity's absolute dependence on animals (for pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research) but also illustrates our complete disrespect for these so-called "non-human providers." The film is narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (GLADIATOR) and features music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby. Heads up: contains some graphic imagery of the day-today reality for many animals. Just watch the first 20 minutes if you can't handle the rest.
