It's a dog's life in Dogtown
21 June 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Dogtown" peers deep into the lives of a handful of middle America working class men and women, all classmates K thru' 12 in a small town, who at age thirty are old enough to know they'll never realize the dreams they dared to dream, now frozen in time, trapped, needy, clinging, and beaten down. Hickenlooper spreads this harsh slice-of-life indie drama out over a character range from the low life to the clean cut, sufficiently blurring good and bad, balancing sensationalism against realism while painting a portrait of pain on a canvass of finely nuanced visages. An excellent watch for indie lovers.
