In the Blood

Genre: Documentary; Director: George Butler; Runtime (in minutes): 90; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Central Park Media

George Butler’s (Pumping Iron) cinematic elegy to the Great White Hunter, In the Blood, may be the most elaborate home movie of the year. Butler takes his young son on a safari in Tanzania, retracing a 1909 trip by Teddy Roosevelt and his son, and making the case that big game hunting is conservation-minded sport, not senseless slaughter. Though fittingly pretty and romantic, the film begs more questions than it answers. C
