Zoo (Robinson Devor, 2007)


An admirably compassionate but awkward look into zoophilia, sparked by the notiorious case of Kenneth Pynan (though he's only ever referred to as Mr. Hands in the movie), who bled to death after being anally penetrated by a horse. Director Robinson Devor understands the sadness, the eerieness and the tragedy of a 'zoosexual's state of mind, but he refuses to acknowledge its bizarreness and its morbid fascination. He has accordingly chosen to photograph the film with artsy, grief-stricken, heavily pregnant lyricism that very quickly becomes exhausting.
