I only write reviews when I see a film that has a rating that does not represent the value of the film. If your looking for a good drama that delves into the fragility and fear we all face towards our own death and need towards self importance. Then this film is for you.
It is an emotional roller coaster ride if you enjoy the quirky nature of the events within the film. I don't feel Woody Harrison was a good fit for this role and he doesn't do it justice, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this film and only watched it because Woody was in it.
It has a few holes, but had this film been made in the 90's it would have received much acclaim. The only downside to this film is that many people will overlook it and that is unfortunate.
From the writer of Ghost World, this film is also directed by an incredibly under appreciated director. Yet to make a meaningless film this Director is only limited by his budget and still managers to deliver.
If you like dogs more than humans this film will also move you in ways that you may not be prepared for. You have been warned.
Also the only distraction I got throughout the entire film was when they visited the set of the "Orange Is The New Black" yellow block set from season 2. Often used in films, they always shoot it from the same angle. Very annoying.
It may also help that even though Jurassic Park came out when I was 9, Laura Dern is still a fox.
Watch this film. You will not regret it.
