    Manohla Dargis Los Angeles Times

    This is, after all, a film in which no one leads life according to script -- but, then, that's also the reason it works. show more

  • 70

    There's an infectious, spry quality to much of The Dogwalker, an indie that benefits from amusing characters, strong thesping and taut situational humor. show more
