The impassioned wrangling between individuals, their pets, and the ad hoc organizations trying to do the right thing makes for a most perturbing film.

You'd have to have a heart as hard as Iron Man's armor not to be moved by this thoughtful documentary by Geralyn Pezanoski.

This movie may improve the lives of animals never touched by storms, and encourage us to be kinder to the vulnerable creatures around us -- canine, feline, and human.

...as all good documentaries should, just when Pezanoski's established a point of view favoring her subjects, she calls some of the points she has made well into question.

Mine is supplemented with a bevy of extras on the DVD...[that] makes the release a total package on animal welfare.

People who love animals would do well to bring tissues and lots of them if they go to see Mine. The one thing all of the individual stories have in common is that no matter how well or how poorly the stories come out, they are overwhelming poignant.

Geralyn Pezanoski's doc about the efforts to reunite Hurricane Katrina victims with their lost pooches is pretty soapy stuff.

Underreported and over-emotional, Geralyn Pezanoski's 81-minute doc exposť about dogs displaced during Hurricane Katrina moves slower than a basset hound to get to these and other thorny questions.

The documentary has a lot to say about human compassion, government bureaucracy and the problems inherent after disasters on a large scale.

It's not just a sadness show; it's a thoughtful and involving look at a difficult side effect of a terrible tragedy.
