Critic Consensus: Ross Kauffman entwines the fate of beast and man alike in Tigerland, an impassioned and persuasive plea for the preservation of an endangered species that declines to sanitize the animals' often lethal power.
Critic Reviews for Tigerland
Nimbly negotiating its geography and parallel narratives, Tigerland is, on the one hand, a wildlife film by a filmmaker from outside that genre. The genre certainly benefits.
"Tigerland" falls into a common trap of advocacy documentaries, which is to inform on an urgent issue - preserving a species - without a particularly urgent cinematic narrative to match it.
While "Tigerland" takes some time to find its footing, Kauffman eventually finds connections that go far beyond the superficial.
The chance to view so many gorgeous, majestic tigers up close and personal is alone enough to recommend Ross Kauffman's fine documentary "Tigerland."
