As warped as cult films get, this crazy adventure received a much needed commentary treatment. What's great about this commentary is that it is in the interview form (LQ Jones talks with a film critic), something more commentaries should aim for. The film, which is a post apocalyptic love story between, you guessed it, a boy and his psychic, talking, deranged dog, may be out-there but the commentary does a great job at contextualizing the films place in history as well as describing how such a low budget film came to be. Jones' stories about working with Peckinpah and directing a dog perforamnce that outshines any humans in the movie are awsome.
