This film starts out playing like a bad B film. Much of the acting is rather stiff and the editing a little choppy. However, the writing is first rate and the sound track out of this world! From the mesmerising, chaotic banjo strains of the opening to the boppin' ska beats and better later on, the music puts the story on a goofy, breakneck pace that never lets up. The wooden acting actually helps the comic appeal and the quality writing delivers a complex character of the skin-head protagonist. "Dog Years" was an unexpected pleasure, possibly the "Repo Man" of its time.
