One of the best things about this is how insanely brave the form is and yet it's also technically masterful.

Deserves every Nickelodeon award it can get - a favourite of mine this year!

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.

Brilliant showcase of your slice of paradise! A fun film that you can tell was a bunch of fun to make. Hope to see more from these film-makers in the future:)

So goooooood.
That pay off was worth the price of admission.
I love films where they do a lot with a little. Contained and minimal location, simple cast - but brilliant writing and interplay between the leads made for enjoyable watching!!

Beautiful meta film! Normally I groan at meta films but this one was beyond engaging as it transcended the usual trappings of a Meta commentary. Beyond that the animation is out of this world.
I cant wait to see the next projects from this creator!

So many moments in here that make this a memorable film. Love the breeder. Total romp!
The fact that you would have had to have made it essentially backwards while shaving to create the different characters adds so much to this. Great planning and great execution.

These are the types of films that tickle my film bone. Completely out the gate exactions of bizarre ideas. Beyond the story elements a technical marvel and the atmosphere was outta this world.
Would love to see what this team can do more on the story side of things as it seems like big locations is a staple in their film making. 100% would watch a longer version of this film.

These guys are way cool
