If The Dog Lover is trying to hide its agenda it's not doing too good ajob of it. It's a slightly creepy film to watch because it does nothingshort of attack government funded protection agencies for going afterdog breeders in general. Are all dog breeders evil? Is every group thatdisagrees with your views 100% evil? Not likely but who really knowsfor sure outside of their own experience. Are protection agenciesspotless in their record of protecting animals? I don't know thateither.<br><br>There are a lot of *suspicious* facts surrounding this movie, from thefunding by a very well known opponent to Animal Cruelty bills to thefact that the ASPCA monitored "some" of the animal action in this film(haven't seen that one before and it gives me pause).<br><br>It is interesting how viciously this film has been attacked in themainstream media with very little convincing non-hystericaljustification beyond its controversial message. The acting is on thewhole very good and the script does a damn good job at presenting aplausible scenario for mismanagement by government funded agencies.<br><br>If you go into this film with a closed mind it's only going to enrageyou. It actually made me consider the other side of this issue. Did itconvince me that all animal breeding is bad? No. Did it turn me againstthe ASPCA? Definitely not. <br><br>I do believe that all zealotry --- for any side --- is unwise and thismovie did confirm that belief. I'd want to know more about both sidesof this argument before I'd support either one, but as a piece ofcompelling storytelling, it works. It held my interest and made me wantto know more.<br><br>Keep in mind when you read any hyper emotional review of this film thatwhat you're being asked to do is simply think for yourself. I can thinkof worse ways to spend your time and money. Yes, you're probably givingmoney to the breeders if you rent or buy this film, but I'd be shockedif this film paid for itself, frankly. And the protection agencies havemore than enough support to wage a counter attack. I'd love to heartheir side of the issue as well. I'm waiting.
