Critic Reviews for Stray Dog

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (32)

  • It would be easy to say Granik offers a portrait of redneck life in "Stray Dog," but even allowing for Hill's guns and skepticism about government, it's clear such an oversimplified cultural cliché can't begin to describe the reality here.

    October 22, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Without voice-overs or interviews or other narrative cues, it offers vignettes from Hall's life, a mosaic portrait of a part of America that is misunderstood, dismissed, exploited, and wooed by outsiders.

    October 22, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is Granik's first documentary, and it lacks the momentum of her two dramatic features (the other is the gripping addiction drama Down to the Bone with Vera Farmiga). But it's still a worthwhile bulletin from red-state America.

    September 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Expertly playing with our preconceived notions, Granik's multidimensional portrait also serves as a telling state-of-the-union address, as seen through the caring eyes of her philosophical main subject.

    July 23, 2015 | Full Review…
  • "Stray Dog" largely succeeds because Granik's technique complements her subject. Both he and the film are modest in their goals and cherish the value of honesty.

    July 3, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps its greatest virtue lies in its powerful, implicit challenge to the lazy habit of looking at American life through polarized red- and blue-tinted lenses.
