“We have these gag sessions… where we all sit around and gag each other.”
There are neither beautiful or necessary images, but I am tired of pretending that this is not an extraordinary motion picture. Stewart Raffill is one of the great filmmakers; few artisans could have taken such a soulless corporate enterprise and moulded something this idiosyncratic.
A raucous collision of documentary and fiction captured and manufactured within the filmmaker’s final year of high-school.
Ethan Eng's Therapy Dogs is one of the few contemporary films to effectively articulate the exuberance and ennui of high-school in a way that also feels aesthetically authentic to how teens are mediating these emotions and experiences today.
Infectiously kinetic editing and madcap stunt work that you should absolutely not try at home. It’s the JACKASS 400 BLOWS.
THERAPY DOGS starts streaming today (until Feb. 6th) as part of the SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL. Badge prices are only $10, so what are you waiting for?
