A Dog Called Money Photos

Movie Info

As imaginative as the creative process it documents, A DOG CALLED MONEY is a uniquely intimate journey through the inspiration, writing and recording of a PJ Harvey record. Writer and musician Harvey and award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy, hatched a collaboration. Seeking first-hand experience of the countries she wanted to write about, Harvey accompanied Murphy on some of his worldwide reporting trips, joining him in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington DC. Harvey collected words, Murphy collected images. Back home, the words become poems, songs, then an album, which is recorded in an unprecedented art experiment in Somerset House, London. In a specially constructed room behind one-way glass, the public - all cameras surrendered - are invited to watch the 5-week process as a live sound-sculpture. Murphy exclusively documents the experiment with the same forensic vision and private access as their travels. By capturing the immediacy of their encounters with the people and places they visited, Murphy shows the humanity at the heart of the work, tracing the sources of the songs, their special metamorphosis into recorded music, and, ultimately, cinema.

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (11)

  • It's often striking but at times feels close to misery tourism, especially when intercut with Harvey's public recording sessions at Somerset House in London, which doubled as an installation.

  • Here's a disappointingly uninsightful documentary about the making of PJ Harvey's reportage-style 2016 album The Hope Six Demolition Project.

  • This film is like a fusty album explainer, and it's really not that much fun.

    November 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • If you've ever wondered what the boredom threshold is for watching a musician tuning a hurdy-gurdy, you'll find the answer here.

    November 1, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A freewheeling visual collage which unearths little of substance from a potentially fascinating mass of material.

  • Strange but kind of hypnotic too
