First of all, let me say this is one of the most original films I have ever seen. The camera work and techniques are very nice. Also, the story of a dog's life and the thoughts that run through his mind about his masters is amazing.
It moves slowly at times but once Baxter (the dog) meets up with his dream master, the pace really picks up.
This movie is a must see for some of the amusing things Baxter thinks about and for the ending that leaves you somewhat sad, but very satisfied and/or disturbed.
