I loved this movie. It is all over the place, but much like the artist, it works.

Tibetan death ritual. Great for afternoon nap.

What a bizarre movie! It took me a couple of sittings to watch. I was eventually drawn into the dream-like theme. Afterwards, I was filled with thoughts on what happens to our beloved pets when they leave us. I enjoyed the art and tried to understand the meaning behind some of it. It was like a musical, poetic tour of dogs and what they mean to us, in an art museum.

Simply brilliant and quite moving.

This is the most unsentimental movie about grief that you will ever see. Story-telling, self, and love are the themes she discusses, while Lou Reed is allowed to enter the film only at the very end, obliquely. So beautiful and thought-provoking. I particularly love how the dog--so often used as the ultimate symbol of unconditional, intensely sentimental love--is represented by many different dogs, visually destabilizing that fixed sign.

The perfect description of dreams and reality ... who knows what is what ? It is what each of us wanted our existence to be. Love is the best truth, worth to keep and it will go for ever.
This is a Lovely film. LOVE IT

This movie is like an artistic style, different than a "regular" movie or documentary. Wasn't quite what i expected, and i'm still kind of confused what exactly what it was about, but i found myself glued to my couch snuggled in my blanket watching. It is peacefully narrated and the scenes are like mindfulness sort of, so i think that helped relax me too stay tuned and optimistic to figure out what exactly i was watching. I think it's a good movie , i can't say it could have been better or worse because it is a different type. Hope this comment helps
