South African accents are so weird. Also, at first that man looked like an idiot, and while I don't agree with him, he seems to be well aware of what he's doing and why he's doing it and stuff.
That's his talent. He'll get Nazis, porn stars, gansta rappers, UFO kooks etc to open up, and you learn a hell of a lot about them then. You see their logic, and it's usually a very different story when you see their logic. He uses being a naive, mild wimp as a mirror to people, and he really does care about them. HE cares enough that it's kind of depressing.
Buy his book for the scoop: http://www.amazon.com/Call-Weird-Encounters-Survivalists-Killers/d p/0306815672/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1228087158&sr=8-1
I'd still be hating this rancher if Theroux hadn't broken through his shell.
Damn.. um... http://tinyurl.com/66b943 there ya go
I know and love Louis, but still. I really liked that documentary he did about I think San Quentin. And I think he was the one who did the one about assisted suicide which was really good.
I'm not arguing, Louis managed to get his real motivation out of him. And he did it passively, which is impressive. Louis isn't trolling either, he gets people to open up by being a decent, mild person himself.

"I'll eat the meat, but I won't kill the animal"?
Knowing Louie Theroux, it is. He's a weak-stomached wimp in one way, but his morals are strong. This is him being tough. Keep in mind that his kneejerk disgust brought out the honesty in the man, and he may not show it here but Theroux seriously considers the arguments that his subjects make, and can be swayed if they are good ones.
He's a passive-aggressive hero.

Better than most scripted monologues.

This man has convinced me that elephants are assholes.

While I don't agree with trophy hunting I can't help but acknowledge the positive effects of it. On a side note I always find peoples general reaction of "oh my god you shouldn't kill animals for meat that's wrong, you should just go buy it at the store." to be fucking hilarious.
Every vegetarian I know who is worth listening to says that if you MUST eat meat, you should kill it yourself. They know that wouldn't make anyone eat MORE meat.
