Narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (WALK THE LINE, GLADIATOR), EARTHLINGS is a feature-length documentary about humankind's absolute economic dependence on animals raised as pets, food, clothing, entertainment and for scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices at some of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals and human economic interests.

I was tempted to end my review there, but I can't hold back more reviews. The narration by Phoenix contains direct quotes from Singer's Animal Liberation, and most of the clips are clearly from hidden cameras in the sleeve of a reluctant employee. The music, while sometimes a bit over-the-top, is terrifyingly real and poignant. This film is a heart attack, one that beautifully combines ethics with anthropology. I cannot recommend this enough.
