Rinella and others gives a vivid description of what goes into the hunting process and what comes after it, and it probably isn’t the barbaric action that people come to think of. The documentary also gives a description of the controversies that surround hunting and it’s an honest acknowledgement of why people can look down on the act.

There’s a lot of perspectives to look into in this film. People talk about laws, about conservation, there’s a person who’s a vegan who questions the ethics of the sport, and then there are the hunters who describes their emotions and feelings while out in the wilderness.

Speaking about laws, the film gives a very simple, but in-depth look into the conservation laws of the country. It also speaks about its past and very simply but effectively gives an overview into how it all evolved.

Stars in the Sky is also a brilliantly shot movie. The shots of the American wilderness and the soft background music beautifully go with each other. It’s quite peaceful and breath-taking to look at. The mountains, forests and the animals have been exceptionally captured.
