Your Mommy Kills Animals (Curt Johnson, 2006)

***
USA

A distressing look into the Animal Liberation Movement, whose actions have placed them at the top of the FBI's list of national terrorist threats (that's right, above Al-Qaeda), mirroring as they often do the very behaviour of the animal-abusers they're fighting against. Director Curt Johnson takes on too much when he brings in the SHAC7 trials and the issues they raise regarding free speech (a topic worth feature length on its own), though his refusal to plonk people into neat hero/villain boxes is commendable.
