Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“[E]xactly what you’d expect from a feel-good road trip buddy comedy about a man trying to befriend a very difficult dog…It’s occasionally predictable, but that predictability is often easy to forgive because it’s all handled with such a steady hand, both narratively and visually…funny, heartfelt, and absolutely gorgeous.”
thumbs-up

“There are plenty of feel-good romps about humans and their animal companions…but ‘Dog’ stands out for how unintentionally toxic it is. Sure, the overly sentimental, preachy flicks that aim to steer the audience away from being critical of war are just as bad, but ‘Dog’ is decidedly uncomfortable because it is tactless and dismissive.”
