MR4RP (Jerry and Mary): We are having a hard time separating the story from the documentary excellence here. Based on the latter, this gets Top of Genre (documentary); based on the former, be ready to be sad, angry, disappointed in humans. Because we saw Buck so recently, the highly unfavorable comparison of Herbert Terrace (the Nim project Director) to Buck Brannaman boggles the mind: the former gives humanity a bad name while the latter gives us all hope. See Nim to be challenged but not entertained. Even the “happy ending”, as Bob, one of the few thoughtful humans in the film said, “isn’t perfect, Nim, but it’s not so bad”.
