Wiener-Dog Review

Note: This review contains plot spoilers.

The narrative of Todd Solondz’s Wiener-Dog takes the form of four shorts connected by the presence of the eponymous animal, however, apart from being central to the first vignette, it tends to function half as a side character and half plot device for the rest of the film. 1,701 more words

Review: Wiener-Dog

Wiener-Dog is the latest film from Todd Solondz. It finds the writer/director on fine form, pedaling more of his homespun all-American nihilism in which depraved hilarity and gut-punch sadness collide. 912 more words

Wiener-Dog (dir. Todd Solondz) 2016

This is a comedy written and directed by Todd Solondz. If you know his name and like his movies you will know not to expect uplifting and light hearted comedy, and this one is bleak even by his standards. 186 more words
