What a Cool Dog.
19 July 2011 | by SgtPluckSee all my reviews

Cool Dog - a triumph of the Nietzchean superman over New York's social inequalities that celebrates rural life in the Deep South yet nevertheless asks the viewer some PRETTY TROUBLING post-colonial questions.

I did come out of this film in awe of just how cool the dog was. He's even cooler than other prominent dogs, such as Snoopy, the Hound Of The Baskervilles, Ghost Dog, and Snoop Doggy Dogg. In addition to this, this film has inspired me in life, and I am currently working on a screenplay of my own. I'm working on a screenplay called "Uncool Dog", in which a dog does things that dogs typically do.It's 90 minutes of a dog scratching himself,urinating on the ground,lying down,jumping on people, sleeping heavily, being taken for walks and scaring sheep. Whilst this is a key work for the 21st century, I do still think we must bear in mind that it does raise some pretty troubling questions about the nature of cool, and may not be suitable for small children.
