      The Dog Who Wouldn't Be Quiet

      2021 1h 13m Drama List
      100% Tomatometer 30 Reviews 75% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings Sebastian is an ordinary man in his thirties devoted to his loyal dog and working in a slew of temporary jobs. As he moves fitfully through adulthood, he navigates love, loss and fatherhood -- until the world is rocked by a sudden catastrophe, upending his already turbulent life. Photographed in stark black-and-white imagery, and awash in ruminative metaphor, writer-director Ana Katz captures Sebastian's midlife coming of age in slices of life both specific and universal as he struggles to adjust to a world that is perpetually changing -- and might be nearing its end.

      Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review A sad, melancholic lonely truth about life...this is a really strange but very truthful and funny and moving film. May 24, 2021 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) The film is droll in places and delicate in others. Rated: 3/5 May 21, 2021 Full Review Ian Freer Empire Magazine A low-key treat about rising above the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be Quiet is something to shout about. Rated: 4/5 May 21, 2021 Full Review Dallas King Outtake Mag Katz has a distinct style and voice that will undoubtedly continue to develop and surprise. And while this work is stunning to look at and wonderfully unique, some may struggle to emotionally connect with the story’s protagonist and narrative. Rated: 3/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Cody Dericks Next Best Picture Ana Katz's new film...explores the simple routines and funny coincidences that make up a life and shows how that life can be disrupted but still march on in the face of disaster. It's slow and gentle with an unpredictable ultimate purpose. Rated: 6/10 Jul 8, 2022 Full Review Filipe Freitas Always Good Movies Despite the setbacks... Im sympathetic enough to Katz's unclassifiable project, which will certainly find an arthouse niche for itself. Rated: 3/5 Mar 18, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      nefasto r Existential, succinct, and often brilliant film. An indi gem. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Rating: C "Beautifully shot in B&W and accompanied by an interesting score (Nicolas Villamil), The Dog Who Wouldn't Be Quiet is meant to be a character-study about a person's resilience, determination, and perseverance in the face of the worst situations that happen across one's life. Despite the message being successfully transmitted, Daniel Katz's character is far from being a compelling protagonist due to his apparent indifference towards every negative event. Acceptance and moving on is understandable and motivational even, but if the movie doesn't depict the moments that define these steps, then it becomes really challenging to feel sorry for the main character, let alone inspired. Ana Katz demonstrates her talented directing skills, but her admittedly creative screenplay co-written with Gonzalo Delgado lacks consistency and energy." Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
