‘…A unique, indescribable beast’ – BuzzFeed
‘Experimental marvel’ – Los Angeles Times.
A dreamy documentary that first seems to be world-known artist Laurie Andreson’s lament over her death of her beloved rat terrier Lolabelle, a dog whose boho West Village existence included painting lessons and a meditation teacher.
However, there is something deeper than that in the movie, with Anderson narrating over a collage of 8mm home video, iPhone footage, canine-level camera, and animation.
When Lou Reed’s resonant “Turning Time Around” comes on the soundtrack, it becomes clear that telling the story of her cherished dog has been a way of mourning the loss of someone else than her pet.
A magical meditation on love and death, as well as a celebration of life to enjoy while we’re still here.
