My Dog Tulip Reviews

Manages to say more about man's relationship with dogs in a single, lush frame than 'Marley and Me' would if it were to run on a loop until the end of time.

It's an oddity, this film: a wry, wobbly cartoon made expressly for grown-ups, featuring quirky hand-drawn animation and very little dialogue outside the central voiceover.

The scratchy animation, reminiscent of Jules Feiffer's beatnik-era doodles, is a homey complement to Plummer's autumnal narration.

A beautifully illustrated love letter to dogs and the people who own them...

A marvelous animated feature, full of quiet joy, honest sorrow, wisdom and a wealth of clinical detail both excremental and reproductive, all rendered in a charming style approximating the dog drawings of James Thurber.

It is told from and by an adult sensibility that understands loneliness, gratitude and the intense curiosity we feel for other lives, man and beast.

Here's a boy-and-his-dog story featuring a very old boy.

It's hard not to feel a certain affection for a tale that is so unapologetic about just that: affection.

Words of wisdom keep popping up in My Dog Tulip with gratifying regularity. They're more likely to gratify dog lovers than anyone else, but that's a large group to which I belong...

My Dog Tulip is as disconcerting and unusual a piece of animation as the 1956 memoir that inspired it, and that is saying a lot.

For the most part, the images undulate. They often appear to be melting. That, or they're streaked or smeared and wholly unruly.

Like the best of Disney's animated films down through the years, the Fierlingers' cartoon celebrates its medium and transcends it. There's great storytelling here.

Sometimes quiet pleasures -- like having a big dog snoozing at your feet, just within petting reach -- are the best.

Never saccharine, My Dog Tulip does justice to the rare experience of heartfelt, mutual love in any form.

Transform[s] the seemingly banal relationship between pet and owner into something singular, inimitable, sacred.
