You're probably going to hear everyone raving about how good Red Dog is. Usually this can kill a movie but for once I think the hype is all warranted. This is an Aussie film for everyone... from locals to foreigners... from youngsters to elderly... its just a really really nice movie. I saw the trailer for Red Dog months ago and the main drawcard for me at the time was the fact that Noah Taylor and Loene Carmen reunite on the screen again, almost as though playing Danny and Freya from The Year My Voice Broke. I'm a big fan of theirs and they've been making music together for years. It was great to see them on the big screen together... but it wasn't far into the film that this excitement made way for the main star of the film, Red Dog!!! I don't think there has ever been a better animal performance in cinema and I doubt there ever will be again. This gorgeous K9 is an absolute show stealing star. This movie is funny, it's heartwarming and it's a celebration of the Aussie spirit. Everyone should go and see it. Beautiful.
