A Dog Called Money Reviews

Strange but kind of hypnotic too

As a peek inside the artistic process, Murphy's film succeeds: it's the type of demystification that only serves to make the endeavour more remarkable.

It is somewhat of a state of the world address filtered through Harvey's abstract music and she keeps her distance and, indeed, a certain mystique throughout.

[A] stunning ode to director Seamus Murphy's métier and PJ Harvey's collaborative genius.

The imagery of the film and its musical flow are very valuable, but it lacks the journalistic rigor, the immediacy and energy that characterizes the great 'rockumentaries.' [Full review in Spanish]

It's fascinating to see the creative process laid bare in such a way, and the film confirms Harvey's position as a vital and relevant artist who thrives through collaboration and experimentation.

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.

An ill-judged film in which suffering becomes scenery.

Murphy has an unerring eye for poetic compositions that emphasise faces, isolated soldiers and civilians in battle zones, and anomalous juxtapositions of vulnerable non-combatants and military personnel.

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

The lack of cohesion in the assembly would've rendered A Dog Called Money a disappointment even if it had arrived punctually... now it feels closer to an irrelevance.
November 5, 2019
A Dog Called Money captures turbulent moments in time through creative reportage but it can feel a little arm's-length; as a portrait of global catastrophe and oppressive capitalism, it really needed to dig deeper.

What results is a disappointment capable of sending any nostalgia away. [Full Review in Spanish]

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

If you've ever wondered what the boredom threshold is for watching a musician tuning a hurdy-gurdy, you'll find the answer here.
June 19, 2019
A Dog Called Money certainly does look and play different to the average behind-the-scenes music doc but not for any discernible, compelling reason.
June 13, 2019
Despite the scale of its vision it is difficult to not see A Dog Called Money as preaching to the converted on some level; the film is unlikely to appeal to anyone who hasn't already made a connection with Harvey and her work previously.

An interesting experiment which doesn't quite work.
February 12, 2019
A freewheeling visual collage which unearths little of substance from a potentially fascinating mass of material.
