Depressing, dysfunctional and disgusting
26 August 2016 | by crobert-656-502490See all my reviews

This is NOT a comedy and not a story about a dog. It is a depressing series of "reality" glimpses focused on seriously disturbed persons, with only a couple of innocent and powerless normal persons who are victimized by the movie's leading characters. There is no story line, no plot and no connection between the scenes. The acting is pathetic, overplayed and out of control. The photography is amateur with no sense of timing or mood creation. The writer/director is obsessed with excrement and creates excessive amounts of it to share his passion with the viewer.. And the camera stays on these scenes as if the run button jammed. The disc went from my player to the trashcan. I didn't want anyone else to view it by accident. As an educational psychologist, I suggest that anyone who positively reviewed this film to seek counseling - quickly. And give your pet away asap, please!
