Critic Reviews for Dog Run

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

Keeps you glued to its images of helplessness, acceptance of sub-human conditions and the effects of drugs on malleable minds.

As much as Dog Run may lament the squatters' lives ... it can't abandon the old dream of dropping out of middle-class life and reinventing oneself as a romantic rebel.

Icky and inert.

Interesting yet lopsided drama focusing on homeless youth in New York.

Film Threat

The refusal to make the squatting and drug-using lifestyle exciting or exaggeratedly excruciating is commendable.

Audience Reviews for Dog Run

[url=""][img][/img][/url] The film is worth watching. But, I have no good reason why. Disturbing. Drug-adled minds at work. There is little to cheer about in the end. Hopelessness is the greater theme, even in light of the false hope of the hero. Washington Square Park in NYC is the setting for much of the outdoor action. A favorite place for many filmmakers to shoot from.
