  • It is a serious, sometimes funny, occasionally disturbing and eventually joyful (a closing club-set scene is punch-the-air good) meditation on grief, loss and the healing power whips and chains.

  • The script takes all sorts of twists. The changes of pace and mood feel natural, and even when things get heavy, it's funny. Some viewers will groan with pleasure, some pain.

    March 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a very hardcore film - there were a couple of moments when I couldn't look, and was longing for the safe word to make the violence stop.

    March 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The feel-good feel-bad movie of the year.

    March 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The catchy title may derive from the puppy-mistress roleplay through which its characters initially connect, but "Dogs Don't Wear Pants" keeps their power dynamic intriguingly fluid and reversible as the relationship unfolds.

  • However limited its ambitions, Dogs Don't Wear Pants is still a witty premise clothed in an attractive technical package.
