September 29, 2017
Seidl's talent for satirical invective is neutralized by his weakness for over-the-top narrative pyrotechnics-this is more warmed-over Quentin Tarantino than Georg Grosz.

lewd and lurid
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Director Ulrich Seidl presents a mean spirited satire of Austrian suburbia in this ugly movie that is quite possibly the worst film (foreign or domestic) of 2003.

June 13, 2006
Dark, probing, and truly disturbing, Seidl's astonishing feature debut explores angst, anomie, and alientaion in Vienna's upscale suburbs in visually audacious mode that goes beyond Todd Solondz and Todd Haynes.

...it's the second half that kills Dog Days.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 15, 2004
Stylistically void, intellectually vapid, narratively coarse, and exploitative of its actors in the worst possible way, the film is an abject failure on every level.
February 4, 2004
A remarkable, deeply disturbing work by a brilliant filmmaker.

Oddly compelling, disturbing -- some might say disturbed -- look at suburban life, Austrian style.

January 12, 2004
Mosaic filmmaking at its most irresolute... [its few affecting] moments are antiseptic, sealed off from any larger relatable context or emotional arc.

Those who know that human beings are more than just the sum of their worst impulses ... will wonder where the rest of the story went.

'People can be so cruel,' one character says after finding a poisoned animal. Judging by Dog Days, so can movie directors.

Strangely entertaining.

January 8, 2004
What some detect as cruelty in Dog Days is in fact a bleak but deeply felt humanism -- a yearning that we might all learn to better love our neighbors and, perhaps more importantly, ourselves.
December 30, 2003
A masterpiece of misanthropy...an uncompromisingly bleak reverie on human misery and meanness.

December 5, 2003
Just because something is degrading and disturbing, doesn't mean it's art. This dog doesn't deserve a day.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 4, 2003
A parade of sadism and misanthropy.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
November 16, 2003
A loser in almost all respects, boasting a parade of nudity that you don't want to see, and over two hours of conversation yielding nothing of interest.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 8, 2003
This is one of those productions that is easier to admire than it is to like.
October 17, 2003
A long slog through the slough of despond.

October 3, 2003
This is a lament on the human condition, free of scented roses and free of solemnity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
