The problem, for me, is with the farm animals. Having one Coyote decimate chickens and ducks without coming up with a solution is downright negligent.
The coyote comes back, kills some more, time and again and they finally they throw up a poorly constructed fence and when that doesn't work they shoot and kill the coyote.
Here in Vermont there are so many backyard chickens and plenty of farms with chickens and a hell of lot of coyotes, fox and fishers and guess what, people don't run through their yards loading a shotgun and firing away.
They take adequate safety precautions beforehand. And by the way, all killing that coyote will accomplish is opening up that territory for another.
Seeing the first of their pig, Emma's, piglets now lbs being weighted and sent away on the truck for slaughter also wasn't what I was interested in seeing, especially after seeing how in the trailer they were treated more like pets.
That's the point I stopped watching so I can't say if my opinion would have changed had I watched it to the end. Update: January 3, When I posted this review it was solely to provide information and opinion to like-minded people.
Information I would have liked to have had when deciding whether this was something I'd want to watch.
I live in Vermont and know how challenging farming is for most to make ends meet. I've read all the comments and realize that this film has touched many in a positive way.
As the film opens, we see Molly scrambling to gather a few things as the farm is besieged by several wildfires and everyone needs to leave.
We then go back to "", as we get to know John and Molly, living in their small Santa Monica apartment. During one of John's camera shooting projects, he ends up adopting a black lab, Todd, from the shelter, and it's not long thereafter that John and Molly are in essence forced to move from their apartment as Todd won't stop barking, and they decide to their dream of farming.
They end up in Moorpark, an hour north of Los Angeles At this point we are not even 10 min. Couple of comments: filmed over almost a decade, this documentary is photographed and directed by John Chester, and it feels almost like a home movie.
A decade or so is condensed in 92 min. Along the way, we get to witness so truly amazing and moving moments as Jeff and Molly face complicated challenges coyotes, severe drought, etc.
The movie's photography is eye-candy from start to finish. Kudos also for the wonderful original score courtesy of composer Jeff Beal.
I can't wait to visit and tour Apricot Lane Farms myself at some point. The movie finally opened this weekend at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati, and I couldn't wait to see it.
The Saturday matinee screening where I saw this at was attended nicely about 20 people. Strong word-of-mouth can make this film into a genuine blockbuster on the art-house theater circuit.
Contradictory morals. It would be different to hunt wild pigs and other animals to harvest their meat and bones and skin out of necessity Stop harvesting animals for profit.
It has to be the most extraordinary account of human beings learning, through trial and error, to live in accordance with not only nature, but the greater cosmos in which we reside.
It would've been sufficient if we were simply shown the photographs of the BLF. It would've been perfectly fine just to hear from John, the BLF's mentor; his words of guidance were absolutely profound.
Heck, just to see the animals in animation would've been great fun! Everyone should see this documentary!
Beautiful movie! Inspiring, real, moving. The science is fascinating, the results thrilling, the message sober and empowering.
Paul Byrnes. Ed Potton. The gentle rhythm of this timely, environmentally conscious documentary will temporarily draw you away from the world of tiny screens into a partially ambiguous yet fulfilling tale of endurance.
Beth Webb. The word "diversity" is mentioned a little too often in the narration, but this is completely irresistible, nonetheless.
Tara Brady. Like a cross between 'Microcosmos' and an origin story for Old MacDonald, this wonderful doc is possibly the most joyous 90 minutes you'll spend in a cinema this year.
Philip De Semlyen. Those interested in farming, adorable animals and environmentally friendly lifestyles will swoon over this lovingly made documentary Leslie Felperin.
In the moment, I found myself overwhelmed by how cute, and how twee it can be. It's charming to a fault, almost obnoxiously so.
But, it gives you a wealth of ideas to ruminate on, leaving you with a substantial amount of hope for the future. Andrew F. A tender reflection Janire Zurbano.
But the real issue is here the myopic pacing, which turns a once-whole film into a mat of vignettes.
Matt Cipolla. What makes The Biggest Little Farm unusual is it has one hand, or paw, in essay filmmaking, another unfortunately in self-promotion and still another in a category akin to Disneynature films.
The mix isn't entirely successful, but its joy is infectious. Cameron Meier. This is a movie about a family with a dream of farming, who makes that dream come true, sort of, with a lot of outside help.
There is some great cinematography showing nature at work on the farm. The story of the farm is well, and fairly told.
Robert Roten. Despite its narrative simplicity, the richness of its subject gives this film real charm and makes it compelling viewing.
