Critic Reviews for Dogs in Space
The background is energetic; too bad the foreground is just as chaotic.
Richard Lowenstein seems as bored with the proceedings as most spectators are likely to be.
Energetic, youthful, frequently hilarious and ultimately so sad, Dogs in Space is an Australian counter-culture classic.
Few films connect with the punk experience like Dogs In Space, a slice of life in Seventies Melbourne that brings together all the major concerns of its era.
Audience Reviews for Dogs in Space
Somehow managed to never see this before, thought it was time I checked it out. Story (and I use that word lightly) is about a group of young people living in a share house (maybe I mean squat, since no one actually pays rent). It just flows along until a tragedy at the end. No huge story to it. I wouldn't say it is fantastic, but I can see why those who grew up with it would love it. Never really liked Michael hutchence or inxs, so that wasn't a factor for me.
Forget Suburbia and even Sid & Nancy. This is the best movie about punk rock ever made. The soundtrack introducted me to Iggy Pop and Gang of Four. But even if I wasn't wildly nostalgic for 8th grade (and maybe continuing to harbor somewhat of a Michael Hutchence crush) I think the movie would still hold up on the merit of its pure earnestness.
