      67% Tomatometer 9 Reviews 80% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings Dogs begins with an elegant tracking shot through a marshland near the Black Sea, eventually landing on a severed foot, bobbing in the swampy water. Soon after, we meet Roman (Dragoș Bucur, star of the classic Romanian noir Police, Adjective), who has just arrived on a vast plot of vacant land bequeathed to him by his late grandfather, known locally as Uncle Alecu. While selling off Uncle Alecu's property, Roman learns that the land came into his family under murky circumstances. Then, after coming upon mysterious midnight meetings on the land, Roman discovers exactly what happened on Uncle Alecu's watch, and why it will be both difficult and dangerous to sell his land: The squatters, led by the fearsome Samir (Snowpiercer's Vlad Ivanov), are a gang of criminals so dangerous that the local police captain (Romanian cinema legend Gheorghe Visu) is powerless to protect him. After his friend disappears and the detached, chewed-up foot washes up, Roman must either cut his losses or stay and fight. Read More Read Less Watch on Fandango at Home Buy Now

      Beatrice Loayza New York Times "Dogs"... commits to the beats of the slow burn thriller in mostly generic form. Sep 9, 2021 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter There's no doubt Mirica can film the hell out of a location or a character's face but as for telling a fully gripping and involving story? The jury's still out on that one. May 15, 2016 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety Shot in heat-stricken widescreen and unadorned with music or other distractions, "Dogs" oozes tension ... May 15, 2016 Full Review Ron Wilkinson It's Just Movies A modern Western in the best tradition that pits change against tradition and men against dogs. Rated: 8/10 Oct 5, 2021 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills It's a quiet death-knell of a movie that pays off, no matter that the fates of some characters are left to our grim imaginations. Sep 13, 2021 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia A powerful crime drama which throws a fish out of water into the wild west. Sep 7, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
