Good Girl

Well, this was quite well made, interesting and a little twisted.
However, for anyone with a fondness for their canine friend this film may have taken things a bit too far. Exploding dogs are definitely not laugh-out-loud comedic drama even for cat lovers. However they give effect to the story and obviously the genre.
Looking past the canine massacre before me, I was becoming even more disturbed by the obvious use of a copycat plot device. I went back and watched Peptok (Grand National Winner) from 2018 to confirm that indeed the same plot device of the self help woman's voice in the earbuds of the protagonist is being used in the 2021 Grand Nation Winning film... hmmm.... I recall the word "originality" being important part of this competition.
Following on with the film which so far had served up only a shock effect, I was then caught off guard by the sudden switch in narrative voice to the Dog! Who's talking? Wheres that voice coming from? Oh it's the dog giving a monologue that makes little sense about some military association... hmmm that was a thin line to draw from the writers and throws the audience out of the story. Ah but its a splatter film you might say... yes but it's still a film and all films in this competition need to be original and have strong narrative structure.
The ending came as no surprise. Most of everyone has guessed it unless they have left the room already.
So this is it. Our Winning film? I saw some awesome films in this competition and while this is finalist material, I certainly would not have picked it as the winner. 3/5 from me.
