Decided to have an evening saver after Jonah Hex and get some more educational fare into my mind. I’d heard Earthlings was a good doc into the slaughter of animals, albeit one that was a bit graphic, and as it’s free on their site (donations encouraged) I thought I’d give it a watch, starting with the trailer.
I was not prepared for it.
It is brutally graphic, though I know this is what goes on. I was in tears.
Couldn’t watch the full thing, but will try again soon. I decided to share the love on Facebook and here are some of the reactions.
Geezo, just watched the trailer too – its horrific! Just burst into floods watching it, don’t think i’ll be watching it now!
Aw shucks, night has been ruined.
Oh fuck you Baz. Fuck you
So, watch it at your own peril.
Instead I watched this Youtube video
And all in all, rethinking my eating habits.
