Critic Reviews for Heart of a Dog
It's an odd, wandering trip, but Anderson's personal touch makes it work.
Heart of a Dog is a unique, indescribable beast, Anderson narrating over a collage of 8mm home video, iPhone footage, canine-level camera, and animation. If it sometimes wanders a little far afield, it snaps back quickly with some sharp observations.
Alternately abstract and literal, the film works best when what we see on screen doesn't align with what we're hearing.
Laurie Anderson's Heart of a Dog is not just a movie but a guided meditation, drawing viewers into a state of peaceful contemplation from which they can consider such subjects as death, loss, and unconditional love.
Audience Reviews for Heart of a Dog
