Description

The great Julian Richings (HARDCORE LOGO, CUBE) turns in one of the most compelling performances of his career as a lonely employee of an Animal Services institution. One of the most haunting films we’ve seen in years, ANIMAL CONTROL is a hellishly tragic vision of desolation that will leave you in tears. An instant landmark in the cinema of hard-hitting alienation, it could almost be likened to an animal lover’s COMBAT SHOCK or MARTIN. As profound and startling a film as one could ever hope to experience. Extraordinary.
