Critic Reviews for Bless the Beasts and Children
Is it in favor of buffalo? Against parents who cause their children to become neurotic? In favor of neurotic kids because they're more sensitive than well-adjusted kids? An argument for gun control?
It is flawed, contrived and heavy with symbolism. But its heart is in the right place. It says something, not only about killing dumb animals but about our sense of values.
Stanley Kramer's children tale, which is earnest and obvious in its message, is now best known for its Oscar-nominated tune.
