Watched Speciesism: The Movie at three in the morning.  Does its fair share of proselytizing, but I suppose that's the purpose of the film?  Properly questions the assumption that humans are superior to animals, and compares our species-ism to the other "isms" that have blighted our past: racism, sexism, etc. and the horrific results of our desire to make animals service our perceived needs (food/clothing/entertainment/research). 

On another note, I loved this book.  A good memoir and a solid case against factory farming.
