  1. dionysus67's rating of the film The Distant Barking of Dogs

    This documentary tackles a worthy and disturbing issue. It also offers an authentic perspective on how war is perceived by the boys. Objections arise though in the cinematic vision of the film, or more accurately, its lack thereof. The poetic imagery is scant (the bathing at the lake, the mural in the house) and the camera lingers on close-ups or dialogues that have little to offer. A missed opportunity, really...
