The Elephant in the Living Room

Another outstanding documentary, this one about "exotic pets" (I don't believe there are exotic pets, only captive wild animals) in the US. The film doesn't say much about these species' lives in the wild or the ugly business of capturing and trading in them - it gives a sense through hidden-camera footage at an exotic animal show and auction - but it is compelling and heartwrenching throughout.
