The Reviews for Animals (2014) 720p

simple without much flashReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 6/10

Jude (David Dastmalchian) and Bobbie (Kim Shaw) are drug addicts. They steal and pull small cons in order to get the next fix. They drift through the world on their own struggling to get by. They suffer illnesses and get robbed by avenging cops. Sometimes their cons don't go well. Jude gets hospitalized and they must face their impending fates.

This is a simple druggie couple movie without too much flash. Dastmalchian doesn't write big scenes in this and he has the feel of a drug addict. Shaw brings a little vulnerability to her role. It's a well made indie with good solid performances on a well worn story path.

Disturbingly realistic and true to life.Reviewed byJ. DavisVote: 7/10

It's not often that a film comes along that accurately captures the incredibly bleak and painful world of heroin addiction. Critically acclaimed films like Trainspotting and Requiem For a Dream are quick to come to mind, but fifteen long years have past since the subject has been hit so emotionally and true to life. David Dastmalchian, the film's writer and lead actor opposite of Kim Shaw, has taken his own past experience and personal struggles with addiction and used it to create a film that captures the day to day struggle an addict faces in a fashion that is second to none.

I've been on methadone maintenance successfully for eleven years and over that time I've forgotten the horror's of my past or maybe buried would be a better term. So this film was real on a very personal level to me, it was as if I was reliving past experiences as events unfolded within the film. I've read that Dastmalchian worked with director Collin Schiffli for a number of years on this project and their devotion to the film shows in its execution. While it's not quite as artistic and visually spectacular as Trainspotting and Requiem for a Dream, it held its own and it didn't romanticize the subject like certain films do. This film is just a small slice out of the life of an addict, what you see here is perfectly normal and it's a cycle of hell that just repeats itself daily. Nothing is stable, you're never ahead of tomorrow. It's nice to see that Dastmalchian has been one of the rare few who has escaped the trappings of addiction and went on to much better things in life. In this case writing his first script and taking the lead in Animals, a film that is certainly worth a look.

"I eat your tears and I save them right up in my belly. I'm Popeye.Your tears are my spinach. They make me strong. That's not fair. I'mthe one who might have cancer. I need spinach."

Are you looking for a movie that'll make you instantly happy or that'llmake your heart beat faster because of the tension? Look further,because "Animals" doesn't fulfill these requirements whatsoever. What atremendously depressing and slow film this is. A sketch of two hopelesscases living on the edge of society and whose desolate life onlyconsists of committing petty crimes in order to provide money for theirbasic needs : a daily dose of heroin or a line of coke. They drivearound all day in a dilapidated car and try to kill their time withuseless activities such as their daily visit to the zoo. The only thingyou wonder after a while is whether or not their relationship is solelybased on their stubborn addiction.

I remember being shocked after watching "Christiane F. - Wir Kinder vomBahnhof Zoo" when I was younger. This was also such a depressing filmabout the devastating effect of heroin and the certainty that those whoused it would eventually die from an overdose. "Animals" didn't leaveme unmoved either. Even though it sometimes felt more easy-going andyou'll be spared from sickening images of withdrawal symptoms. Jude(David Dastmalchian) and Bobbie (Kim Shaw) have a whole series ofscamming tricks they use regularly on innocent people, to get somemoney. And when they succeed in it, the money is gone in the shortesttime. All spent on some precious bags full of white powder. And everytime when they've used the drugs, they realize that life can't continuelike this. That they should find a way out. This was the last time theyused again. Especially when they bump into a couple of corruptpolicemen who expropriate their hard-earned money and little bit ofdrugs. But when the first withdrawal symptoms appear, it's back to thesame old routine.

I do like survival films, but not exactly this kind of survival films.Ultimately, this is nothing but a portrait of two people trying tosurvive. It was terrible to see how far they would go out of despair.They both realize all too well what state they are in. They even wonderhow they've ended up in this situation. Two white Americans with aproper education and both reasonably intelligent. In the end theycompare it with the stupidity of birds that keep flying into the samewindow time after time. So it's dismissed as just their own stupidityand that's that. So despite the awareness and sometimes rising urge toquit, the two of them can't make that crucial step towards salvationfrom this deadly sh*t.

Fortunately I don't have any experience with such drugs. Though otherexperiences are kind of similar to Jude's and Bobbie's hopelessaddiction. The renditions of David Dastmalchian and Kim Shaw seemed tome realistic enough. Superb acting and wonderful to see how they shiftbetween different moods all the time. Even the physical appearances ofthese two addicts changes in a convincing manner as they exhibitwithdrawal symptoms. Jude is an intelligent young guy, but he's alsounreliable and selfish. Bobbie usually looks like a real slob, untilthey are doing the call girl trick and she starts to dress up. At thatmoment she reincarnates into a wonderful and beautiful looking woman.The supporting roles are of secondary importance as they come and go.The entire film focuses on the two main characters only.

Eventually, the whole film is just a series of fragments about humandecay, despair and misery. And this interspersed with brief flashbacks(with drugs always in a leading role) and moments when the duo tries toget money. Until disaster strikes and then it goes straight to thedenouement. And that's where this movie moved me. That specific momentproves that there's indeed still a close and intimate bond betweenthose two. An endearing gesture. Perhaps a glimmer of hope for success."Animals" is a moving film that contains a kind of twisted love story,showing how an animal instinct seizes a human being whose body screamsfor drugs. What a sublime movie!
