“Thoughtful, Compelling and Heroic. The film made me proud to be a primate.”

“‘Unlocking The Cage’ is a smart, heroic act of film-making.”

“In their new documentary, D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus bring their relaxed, acute observational style of filmmaking to bear on a thorny tangle of legal and philosophical questions. Observant and absorbing.”
