William Wegman is a genius.
24 December 2000 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Hardly Gold is a subtle masterpiece of affectionate satire, compelling photography, and strikingly original humor. I was repulsed by Ducky-24's comments; Hardly Gold is neither childlike nor confusing. (If you are confused by something as artfully and concisely crafted as this movie, lock yourself in a closet and don't bother anybody.) I am sorry to be so confrontational, but I'm afraid my strong feelings about this classic piece of cinema easily warrant a fiery response to the rather careless and uninformed words of Ducky-24.

New York photographer William Wegman made this film from the heart, using his beloved dogs as actors in a perfectly composed spoof of the early Hardy Boys mysteries. The dogs in question are the Weimaraners Wegman made famous by dressing them up in human clothing and photographing them in human situations. You may have seen them recently in a series of Honda commercials as well. Anyway, the pups deliver in this movie. They'll make you laugh, they'll make you cry, they will make you love this short film. And if you're a fan of great cinematography--and I kid you not--this is a prime specimen.
