The Wild Dogs (2002)
Critic Reviews for The Wild Dogs
Fitzgerald's dialogue rings true, and he captures performances, including his own, which belie the film's low production values.
No one in this sterile film is redeemed, condemned or even particularly humanized. . . . Ultimately, Fitzgerald's gutless film is a muddled, grotesque travelogue.
Highlights the trap a filmmaker can fall into when he believes himself to be smarter--better somehow--than an audience that must get tired of being underestimated.
Audience Reviews for The Wild Dogs
An uncommonly sensitive drama about the poverty and hardship suffered by the exploited Gypsy residents of Bucharest? A muddled, grotesque travelogue where a pretensious director chides his audience and underestimates their awaredness? Probably a bit of both.
