Wiener-Dog

Wiener-Dog

Morosely amused indie filmmaker Tod Solondz returns briefly to the life of awkward suburban gal Dawn Wiener (from 1995's Welcome to the Dollhouse). She's now played by mumblecore muse Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha, Mistress America, Maggie's Plan), and she's just one of several dysfunctional pet owners whose lives are touched by a dachshund who passes from person to person. Julie Delpy, Kieran Culkin, Ellen Burstyn and Danny DeVito are among the cast of this bizarre ensemble comedy. As usual for Solondz (who also gave us Happiness, Storytelling, Palindromes and Dark Horse), this is dusted with cringe-inducing, humanity-hating humor. FULL REVIEW: Morosely amused filmmaker constructs a shaggy dog tale for a change by Devin D. O’Leary (7/14/2016). 88 minutes R.
