If someone wants to make a case that our four-legged actor friends deserve to be considered for Oscar consideration, right alongside Streep and McConaughey, they need only offer White God as evidence.

What it all means is open to interpretation. Read it as a parable or as a horror movie. Read it as the story of love between a girl and her dog. Read it however you want. No matter what your take, you won't be disappointed.

White God offers a dark - very dark - take on the way humans exert authority, and superiority, over our fellow creatures.

The obviousness of the message -- follow the right leader -- would be more tolerable in a less badly acted, less shoddy-looking film.

A mixed-genre fable that evokes Dickensian melodrama, coming-of-age tropes and outright horror.

Think "The Incredible Journey" crossed with "The Birds" crossed with "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." Or maybe just imagine "Cujo" as told from the dog's point of view. Don't take grandma.

It all pays off with an astounding, extended climax that is as rousing and exciting as it is frightening - one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had watching a movie.

Even those who don't buy in completely to Mundruczo's parable will be impressed by his canine crowd scenes, staged with ambition, skill and genuinely original vision.

Unfortunately, whatever satisfaction you may derive from seeing assorted nasty human beings get what's coming to them for betraying the trust of man's best friend is watered down by vague social and political allegory.

By turns Dickensian, Marxist and dystopian, it's a movie as deliriously unclassifiable as it is expertly focused in its desire to provoke and entertain.

Intriguing, but the movie's larger statement isn't clear.

The whole production speaks well for the power of film; it's a serious stunner.

Rarely does a film's execution achieve or even exceed its director's ambitions, but Hungarian director Kornel Mundruczo's "White God" is that rare movie.

Imagine an "R" rated Lassie by way of Spartacus. That's Kornél Mundruczó's White God, a brutal but stirring fantasy about street dogs rising up against cruel and indifferent humans.

A B revenge movie with A-plus direction by Kornél Mundruczó and a cast of canines so personable that even when they tear out people's throats you still want to take them home.
March 27, 2015
A rousing creature-feature thriller and political allegory, from Hungarian director Kornel Mundrucz.

The hand that feeds - and also brutalizes - is righteously bitten in "White God," a Hungarian revenge fantasy that's like nothing you've seen on screen before.
