Renowned multidisciplinary artist Laurie Anderson reflects on the deaths of her husband Lou Reed, her mother, her beloved dog, and such diverse subjects as family memories, surveillance, and love in this extraordinary, wry, wondrous and unforgettable cinematic journey.
“Wildly inventative…philosophically astute, emotionally charged.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“SPELLBINDING. Smart, silly, sad, and relentlessly honest. One of the most moving and provocative films you’ll see this year. ” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
“Laurie Anderson’s Heart of a Dog is not just a movie but a guided meditation, drawing viewers into a state of peaceful contemplation from which they can consider such subjects as death, loss, and unconditional love. ” – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
“Dreamy, drifty and altogether lovely… It joyfully embraces silliness… at times, it feels as if she too were haunting her movie even as, with every image and word, she fills it with life.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“It’s Reed’s ‘magnificent spirit’ she dedicates the film to, but it’s hers – beautifully inquisitive, witty, open, lyrical and generous – that makes HEART OF A DOG so dreamily memorable. ” -Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
Length: 80 min.
