An indie that benefits from amusing characters, strong thesping and taut situational humor.
It's mighty tedious for the viewer who has to contend with unpleasant characters, hit-and-miss performances and awkwardly staged scenes.
This isn't a retooled genre piece, the tale of a guy and his gun, but an amiably idiosyncratic work.
Trying hard to be cute, The Dogwalker is instead as muddled as can be, tripping up the film as if its ankles were entwined in its own leash.
A pleasingly unpredictable stroll across all of the boundaries that we believe separate us -- and that actually do.
This movie plays like an extended dialogue exercise in Retard 101.
