The “hero” of this film is a dachshund who goes by several different names and has a variety of owners. This anthology of darkly comic vignettes follows the canine through a dizzying array of experiences, from narrowly escaping being euthanized to being strapped with explosives. His dignity provides silent commentary on the human folly he witnesses. Shot in Rockland County. 2016, USA, 88 minutes, rated R for language, comedy/drama

Critics’ Pick: Time Out, Village Voice, LA Weekly, People

“Elegantly wrought. . .a sly, stimulating provocation.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“So bracingly unexpected, twisted and startling that you can scarcely help but laugh and admire his originality.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

“[A] barbed and beguiling canine odyssey in four parts.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“With all its humor (and there is a ton), Wiener-Dog, following the journey of a dachshund as it is shuffled from owner to owner, is one of Solondz’s sharpest visions of futility.” – Sheila O’Malley RogerEbert.com
