"Director's Cut: Full-Screen DVD"

The Wild Parrots Telegraph Hill

The Wild Parrots Telegraph Hill

I was looking forward to seeing this movie for some time now, but could not because Wild Parrots did not play in the area I live in. Thankfully, it finally came out on DVD just recently! And today this wonderful film exceeded my expecations. Mark Bittner and the birds he befriended, fed and studied make for a fantastic subject of a truly moving documentary. I learned so much and was just simply fascinated with his insight on the birds and their relationships with him and with each other within the flock. The colors of the birds was incredibly captured as was the city of San Francisco and Telegraph Hill. I am a bird lover, but do not own a bird or keep one in a cage. I hope that people will see this movie and think about the living soul of all creatures and be as touched as I was with what Mark and Judy had to say with such elegant simplicity and care.

  2. March of the Penguins got all the publicity as the year's nature documentary hit, but Wild Parrots easily beats it on an emotional level. This was one of my favorite films of 2005, what a shame that it flew under the radar. Highly recommended, but beware...

    The first pressing of the DVD was manufactured without Dolby 5.1 Surround sound, it is stereo only. (You can still generate surround sound using you receiver's Dolby ProLogic mode, but that's not as good as real Dolby 5.1). Pelican Media announced on its web site that it was a manufacturing error, and that subsequent pressings would be properly encoded. The second run won't be pressed until January 2006 though, so if you order early you risk getting a stereo-only copy. Pelican Media has offered to replace the defective disks, you can see details at PelicanMedia.org.

    This has got to be one of THE best movies I've ever seen. TWPOTH can be appreciated by a wide audience: people with an interest in San Francisco and its history, people drawn to Buddhism and a Buddhist-flavored way of life lived in America, bird fanciers, gentle souls, and even children. The movie offers many subtle nuggets of truth when you contemplate the behind-the-scenes ideals of this flock of wild parrots and the man who loves and cares for them. The balanced measure of the middle path between extremes. The true definition of a career. The awe and wisdom of life. The sentience of animals. The power of a single human to do good with so few resources. And the corroding effect of our modern, full-speed-ahead society that views nature as an inconvenient beast to be defeated rather than revered and honored as our life-giving coccoon. There are poignant moments of sadness, but overall, the movie flows with a wise and serene tone. Most amazing are the breath-takingly beautiful parrots, their antics, their amazing intelligence, their vivid personalities, their avian romances, and their wondrous wild existence on Telegraph Hill.

  4. I own eight conures, so this movie brought home many things that I have experienced with my own pals. BUT more than that, the movie brings out many feelings in life, like having to leave of losing a loved one, as well as many feelings that people encounter growing up, like not being accepted. If you have ever wondered why life isn't fair, or why bad things happen to good people, this movie will bring those feelings to the surfice. I for one plan on traveling to San Francisco to see these amazing creatures and can't wait for the DVD.
