If you're looking for a movie that starts out light but goes dark pretty quickly and without warning, this one is for you. Molly Shannon plays an assistant who goes through an emotional roller coaster when her beloved dog unexpectedly dies. Her emotions take her into places that you're not really expecting, so at times the film can make you a little uneasy. However, it's worth watching for Molly Shannon's strong performance, who shows you more range than you'd think.

This film couldn't have had better timing in my life. A very quirky and funny and heartbreaking film. I love movies that are able to make me cry and then make me laugh. Shannon was using her A game for this film and she definitely well cast as this zany dog owner who's world seems to fall apart after the passing of her dog, Pencil. Be sure and not let this film pass you by.

Year of the Dog

Molly Shannon just breaks your heart. Her character can connect more with animals than humans--the issue of alienation was focused and pervaded the film. The movie also had a great balancing act of comedy and drama, not to mention it's done in a very refreshing way. I know this movie will be overlooked by a lot of people even though it doesn't deserve to be. This is a solid movie about animal lovers with a strong passion for protecting and establishing their rights. The jokes are fresh, subtle, and darkly comic--all of which I appreciated. I also loved how the film started out cute and evolved into something a little darker. It's kind of like a journey from a simple liking to obsession and madness. This is a small movie but it gives out strong emotional impact. Highly recommended.
