As Boisset revisits the hard boiled works of Marvin, "Dog" becomes as much an analysis of voyeurism as it is of the "criminal." Rural farmers are implicated with crimes worse than Marvin (against filial honor, respect, and humanity) yet those with a privileged view are revealed to be limited in comprehension of the crimes observed and delusional positions view crime as justified retaliation for lost humanity.
