(I consider myself a pretty serious movie fan. But the simple fact of the matter is that I miss stuff. Famous and interesting stuff. But not for long! Welcome to the column where I continue my film education before your very eyes. I will seek out and watch all of the movies I know I should have seen by now. I will first "review" the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation. Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try!)

No, this is not Enemy Mine as promised last week. A Netflix mishap saw to that. However, the show must go on, so this week I'll be talking about--

The Film:

A Boy and His Dog (1975), Dir. L.Q. Jones


Don Johnson, Susanne Benton and Jason Robards.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now:

There used to be a VHS copy of this lingering around my local Blockbuster. By the time I was old enough to be intrigued by "an R-rated, rather kinky tale of survival," DVD had made its grand arrival and every VHS tape in the store was gone. Like tears in rain.
