Black Eyed Dog (2006): Dir: Pierre Gang / Cast: Sonya Salomaa, David Boutin, James Hyndman, Brendan Fletcher, Fred Ewanuick: No, this is not a film about a dog on the losing end of a punch in the face. It regards a small town during the midst of a manhunt and a young waitress who feels trapped. Her mother is in a mental hospital. Her father stops by the diner to beg for cigarettes. Her boss wants her to take over the diner. A reporter wishes to do a project on the community as well as sleep with her. Her sister steals her savings only to learn that the guy she bought the ride on mower for is actually gay. Her ex-boyfriend is a psychotic drug addict whose idea of trick or treat is beating the snot out of the elderly. Structured nicely but it plays better as a drama than a thriller. Directed by Pierre Gang with unflattering photography but the characters are at least interesting. Sonya Salomaa holds strong as a waitress looking for a way out. She dreams big but life is complicated with people within her life. Fine supporting work by David Boutin, James Hyndman and Brendan Fletcher who all add conviction to their roles despite subplots that are not always dealt with using proper execution. This is not exactly great independent filmmaking due to its lack of resources, but it does succeed as a screenplay. Independent film that regards the inability to visualize our dreams. Score: 7 / 10
