Product Description

Zoo tells the story of a seemingly average businessman whose secret sexual life led to his shocking death. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Robinson Devor, the film explores the ensuing media coverage and public outcry that uncovered a secret community, in Enumclaw Washington State, of apparently upstanding citizen s who share this extreme and exotic appetite, revealing the enormous gulf between what we appear to be and who we really are. Inspired by the events that led up to, and following, the Enumclaw, horse incident, Zoo is a provocative and compelling look at one of the most sensational and tragic news stories of recent times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious, hypnotic and moving 19 May 2011
Format:DVD
Upon getting hold of a copy of Zoo, my girlfriend asked me what it was about. I ummmed and aaahhh before informing her that it is in fact a documentary about a man who died from internal injuries, caused by having sex with a horse. That's putting it nicely. I may have even used the phrase 'bummed to death'. She then asked me why I would want to watch a film about such a thing. I couldn't reply. The fact is, since Zoo was released back in 2007, I had been dying to see it. I don't know what that says about me. Perhaps it's revealing my disturbing levels of curiosity about all things that shouldn't really be discussed. Anyway, I had the last laugh, as the film is genuinely very good.

On a small farm in King County, Washington, groups of men would get together every now and then to escape their hectic lives and family. They would talk, drink, joke and play games together. They also had one thing in common - they were in love with horses, and enjoyed having sex with them. When a withdrawn character called Mr. Hands arrived at the farm, the men were curious. He seemed unsure and unattached. In 2005 he was rushed to the hospital, dying of internal injuries. He subsequent death caused a media storm and the investigation uncovered the farm and what was happening there. The state was forced to immediately pass laws against beastiality and the recording of the act.

While it would be quite easy to make a joke of the situation, or to make a straight-laced documentary uncovering the seedy goings-on at the farm and the incident that later became known as 'the Enumclaw horse sex case', credit must go to director Robinson Devor for creating something entirely different. It was completely not what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstood masterpiece 7 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An absolutly fantastic stab at the art of documentary filmmaking, filled to the brim with beautiful music, a fantastic approach to the act of cinematography and a vile but fasinating story .
If you can look beyond the heinous crimes perpetuated by men of questionable character, then there is so much beauty to be found among the muk.
I advise you to look and listen.

Enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Yawn-o-Rama 2 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Really beautifully filmed but God, hard to follow. It's all filmed as if you already know what's going on - I bought this following a great review and the Amazon blurb, but truth be known it's like reading the clippings, not the whole page, of an interesting news article. From what I can gather (I was nodding off) there's some sort of horse sex community ring going around Seattle and one chappy dies in the act (makes sense when you think about size scales - yup, this guy wasn't giving if you follow...). His death opens up the whole shebang to the public and...something...probably...yawn...comes of it...in the words of Morrissey - "If I were you I wouldn't bother."

1.0 out of 5 stars Um, what? 16 July 2011
By Asbo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not really sure what the hell was going on in this film. It seemed to go on for weeks with no real story or goal, I remember vaguely waking up half way through sweating and disorientated on the sofa. I think they like horses.....but there was no horses anywhere....Americans are weird.

If this is the sort of thing that employees of boeing get up to in their spare time then I'm buying shares in Airbus.
