Film #165: THE ELEPHANT IN THE LIVING ROOM
The Elephant In The Living Room
3.5 out of 5 stars
The keeping of exotic animals anywhere around people is illegal in a lot of states. In a lot of states, it’s not. THE ELEPHANT IN THE LIVING ROOM is a documentary about the two sides of that discussion. One… owns a total of 4 lions (a male, a female, and two cubs). He sees them as his pets and he loves them. The other side is The Law. The film focuses on a cop whose job it is to police exotic – and oftentimes highly dangerous – animals that may cause a problem with the human population. The film tries to show both sides of the argument, but… it’s hard to sound rational when you live with a bunch of really dangerous predators. Very much worth renting, but animal lovers should know it can get a little rough now and then.
