  • Bestiary

    2012. Canada. Written and directed by Denis Côté. Côté, a veteran of both Canadian Front (Drifiting States, 2006) and New Directors/New Films (Curling, 2011), has made a canny hybrid film that looks like a documentary but, true to the film's title, may not be about anything "real." Bestiaire comprises a series of mesmerizing shots of animals, zoo attendants, visitors, and taxidermists, interacting (or not) with beasts that are alive, dead, and, perhaps, not even there. Print courtesy of FunFilm Distribution. 72 min.
