"Animals" is a stark, brilliant, uncompromising, beautifully acted piece of work.Ben Sachs Chicago ReaderMay 21, 2015
The couple's doomed romance feels familiar from numerous other films about addiction, and the movie is downright bad whenever it aspires to visual poetry.Sheila O'Malley RogerEbert.comMay 15, 2015

There's no shortage of indie pictures that burrow into the cold realities of drug dependency. But "Animals," like the best of these films, moves beyond mere cautionary tale.
