A BOY AND HIS DOG

L.Q. Jones, USA, 1975, Shout! Factory, Cult

“Brilliantly grotesque!” — New York Times

We all knew The Bomb would bring barren landscapes, pillaging hordes and a nightmare post-society -- but who foresaw telepathic dogs and underground sex carnivals run by clown-faced townies?  Sci-fi scribe Harlan Ellison did in A BOY AND HIS DOG, adapted for the screen by veteran character actor L.Q. Jones.  The film's comedic vision is once removed from most others, as its action takes place after World War IV(!), indicating a wry resignation to the inevitability of a WWIII.

In what’s billed as "A Rather Kinky Tale of Survival", wasteland roamer Vic (Don Johnson of “Miami Vice”) searches for food and sex alongside his mind-melded canine companion Blood.   In the midst of their meager existence, Vic and Blood encounter a young woman who lures them into a surreal city deep beneath the earth’s surface.
