Chris Popkoff’s review:
A very odd Comedy/Drama revolving around a group of people whose lives are unknowingly being directed by a group of animated dogs playing cards, all Greek Mythology-like, looking down from an omnipotent position and all.
The movie had a lot of weird casting decisions, at least as far as bit players are concerned, with Eugene Merman as a Elevator Man, John Sayles as an Apartment Manager, and David Cross & Eli Wallach as the 2 of the voices of the dogs. It was a colorful and sweet movie, but I’m not sure I would ever watch it again. It also had music by Yo La Tengo in it.
