      Audience Member I love this movie. Diane and Pamela Gordon great performances!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Elli, a lost, unsteady and depressive women, stranded in Los Angeles. On the one hand, she luckily escaped from her violent boyfriend, on the other hand she is still the same victim, got robbed, beaten and almost raped. But within all the scumb she found a friend: the old, grumpy Dogwalker Betsy, who teaches her that you at first have to take care of yourself, before the “dogs stops fucking you”.  The Dogwalker is sensitive movie about a young women with an unknown future and an an old one with an unknown past, helping each other to defend their right to live. Excellent acting and an amazing script settle this film, crowded by weird dog-people, one a layer above entertainment. It's an experience.

      Nathan Rabin AV Club The Dogwalker boasts a scruffy underdog charm, but sometimes that just isn't enough. Rated: B- Sep 29, 2006 Full Review Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune Gaidry has no real character to play and brings little of her own spark to a desultory character study. Rated: 1/4 Sep 28, 2006 Full Review Preston Jones Slant Magazine Broken Bridges is wrapped tight in the cloak of good intentions, soft-pedaling tired tripe about redemption, reconciliation, and finding solace in the bottle. Rated: 1/4 Sep 13, 2006 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter The Dogwalker is in many ways a dark comedy about a micro-slice of LA madness in the tradition of Laurel Canyon and Ellie Parker... May 12, 2020 Full Review Bruce Feld Film Journal International Modest but compelling tale of a victimized woman looking for a life free of pain and abuse.
