Movie Reviews

Pale Male
Sylvia Goldberg | Stuart, Fl. | 06/08/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is absolutely astounding.As a birder myself just the idea of a Red Tail taking up residence on 5th Ave. is great. He has had more than one mate. His first,First Love was rehabilitated at The Raptor Trust in New Jersey and released from there. His second mate was also a Raptor Trust rehabilitated hawk. My daughter worked at The Raptor Trust for 10 years. We are all very happy with the success of Pale Male's nesting. He is a magnificent bird."
What a great story!

"I have watched it with my 70 year old parents and with kids. It's a lovely story for all ages!"
Fantastic documentary!

"This film has it all -- pathos, love, conflict, loss, and survival -- and all the magnificence of the natural world -- filmed to advantage against the dramatic backdrop of Manhattan. I was a tad apprehensive that this would be another plodding and overly-didactic nature documentary, but the story unfolds with drama, subtlety, and wit. We follow not only the truly remarkable hawk, Pale Male, and his mates and offspring, but also their human admirers, and we grow to love them. In this day and age, it is so refreshing to see the rare feel-good story in which nature thrives and humans do the right thing."
