Absolutely unforgettable. Thom Fitzgerald is exceptional.
16 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is filmed in Romania. The brilliant director/writer, Thom Fitzgerald, takes you on a journey that is shocking, raw, and honest. Emotions are beautiful and raw. I was thinking throughout the movie how little control we really do have over our own lives.

The characters sort of creates themselves. Sometimes I was so angry that I felt like throwing up but then suddenly I would see something that was extremely tender and funny. Fitzgerald controls the viewer as though he has a whip: he knows how to use it, but he also knows when to lie it down.

The camera shoots are exceptional as well. Watch the movie the second time and take in all the background, the shading, the movements, the actors.

I've never seen a movie like The Wild Dogs. I really can't remember seeing a movie that has made me so angry at some characters but then so happy with other characters. I don't know how Fitzgerald did it, but he has created a masterpiece. Watch the movie for what it is: not what you think it should be because I think most people would find the subject matter totally haunting. This movie is not for the faint of heart.

I rate this movie a 10 out of 10.
