This was one of the worst films a SXSW Film Festival. The audiencefound it confusing and almost incoherent. The experimental attempt keptjumping around from rats to video games to the sociology of race inBaltimore to some sort of attempt to recreate crime scenes. None ofthese parts seemed to be connect to the other parts. It just jumpedfrom one part to another without any real transition or clearnarrative. The narration was also done in this strange voice thatsounded almost like a computerized voice. There were individual scenesand characters that seemed somewhat intriguing particularly as theyrelated to the human relations with rats. Some people wanted toexterminate them while others treated them as pets. But none of itconnected in this poorly edited mess of a movie. This was film is sadlya failed experiment.

Only about half of this film was about rats. Other parts were just rambling with long stretches using Google street views and aerial views of Baltimore. It was like it wanted to transport the viewer into some kind of video arcade or game. Statistics were cited over and over that had little correlation with rats. There was little in the way of relating these stats to rats.
This film was so annoying because it would have some segments on rats - and then veer completely off topic. It even showed what looked to be NASCAR racing!!
Even though this was hardly over an hour it just dragged on. Not very illuminating.
"Rat Film" is a feature-length documentary that uses the rat--as well as the humans that love them, live with them, and kill them--to explore the history of Baltimore. "There's never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it's always been a people problem." Although this film is excellent, it may be unsettling for some viewers who prefer the lineal, traditional documentary film. This film is not the same old thing, and even the title is rather misleading.
Yes, we have stories about rats in Baltimore, rat catchers, people with rats for pets... and did you happen to know that rat poison came from Baltimore after it could no longer be obtained from Germany? But it also covers the history of segregation in Baltimore and how the system perpetuates itself. Theo Anthony, the director, sees the film as a series of tangents and tangents on tangents that all relate. Viewers may see it, maybe not. Sometimes the tangents get really out of hand... the forensic science sections are fascinating, and are worthy of a look, but how do they relate to rats or any of this?
