Where are all the protesters who gather whenever some idiot tries tocensor artwork or expression that is contrary to American culture? Noneof them seem to have shown up when this great work was put on theshelf, then later chopped up. Europeans, with an open eye to Americansociety (only due to the be...
"white dog" is one of the best films of the 80's,it's a very very hardfilm but also a really clever and lucid film aboutracism,conditioning,hatred and the complex connections between peopleand animals. The acting (especially from Kristy McNichol and PaulWinfield) is great,Fuller's direction and his ...
White Dog is often mentioned on lists of all-time most controversialfilms, and there's a good reason for that. Samuel Fuller's film iscontroversial because it confronts the theme of racism head on, andsucceeds where modern films such as 'Crash' fail in that it actuallymakes you think. Rather than ac...
I can't let this be the only comment for White Dog.The best film about racism and hatred I've ever seen, with the basicmessage that hatred isn't something a child is born with, it'ssomething they have been taught. And the question is raised, can youun-teach them?A black animal trainer (Paul Winfield...
Quite an interesting film about a hound trained to attack blackpeople,and a black animal trainee, Keys, played by Paul Winfield, for whom itbecomes a very personal matter to do a difficult job of deprogramming adog.Misunderstood by many as a racist film at the time it came out, now itbecame sort of ...
If you get the chance, by all means see this movie, but try to leave yourpreconceptions aside.Before this movie came out, it was roundly denounced by people whomisunderstood what it is about. The story is not, as many feared, about adog trained to attack black people. It is the story of a man (Pau...
As someone who was raised to abhor racism & any discrimination for thatmatter, maybe there is some truth to the idea that a person's beliefs(whether questionable or not) all begin with how they are raised. Thiscould very well transfer to the animal kingdom if WHITE DOG is anyindication.Just from rea...
In Los Angeles, the unemployed young actress Julie Sawyer (KristyMcNichol) hits a white German Sheppard while driving though the hillsduring the night. She brings the dog to the veterinary and keeps theanimal in her house on the hills. Julie takes a picture of the dog anddistributes fliers with her ...
This film demonstrates how racism is a learned behavior. The man whotaught the dog to attack blacks will pass his hate onto his two youngdaughters. The daughters will most likely pass this onto their childrenand the cycle will continue. It will require a strong minded individualto recognize this ign...
Adapted by Fuller and Curtis Hanson from the Romain Gary novel (to whomthe picture is dedicated), WHITE DOG was the iconoclastic director'slast Hollywood effort – and one of his most remarkable, in my opinion.However, due to accusations of racism, the film was never released totheaters in the U...
Meandering at times, but sensitive thriller about a white-colored,racist dog trained to attack African-Americans. Kristy McNichol nurseshim back to health after hitting him with her car, soon learning histrue nature and dedicating herself to curing the gorgeous butbrainwashed creature. The random sc...
Sam Fuller's reputation as an important film maker is something of amystery to me. The movies of his that I've seen have all had a cheap,distinct trashiness about them. This in itself can hold a certainappeal, but there's an overriding sense of an amateur at work, ratherthan the serious director he ...
White Dog (1982)As usual, the sensationalist Sam Fuller pulls off a riveting film, andits message about racism is blunt. And the filming is strong, theediting tight. Much of the acting (the three main people at least) isalso good.But the writing is forced, which causes some of the lesser actors tofu...
Ugh. Yet again, a movie controversial for its apparent "racism"obviously wasn't watched by the people who criticized it, because thisis about as anti-racist as it gets. In fact, White Dog is the exactopposite of that terrible 2004 movie Crash: actually anti-racistinstead of stereotypical, craftily a...
I was expecting to see an edgy film--after all, WHITE DOG was pulledfrom circulation because of its racist message. However, I was totallyshocked that the film, despite a lot of positive reviews, turned out tobe really, really stupid and nothing like the earlier brilliant filmsof director Sam Fuller...
White Dog tackles the question, "Can racism be cured?" Also what happenwhen the question is attached to some one you love? At what point doyou stop turning a blind eye and making excuses. Right off the bat we(the audience) is lured into caring for and even loving the mysteriousdog hit by a car. Acco...
I thoroughly enjoyed this powerful film, particularly for its wittywriting,great camera work, and editing. It is on par with To Kill a Mockingbirdinterms of its comprehensive treatment of prejudice. My favorite scene isMcNichol's chance encounter with the dog's original owner. Throwingtranquilizi...
How to take a sensitive issue that has never been put in film beforeand turn it into an emotionless drab of a movie? Just watch White Dog.Julie (Kristy McNichols)finds a lost white German Shepard and when noone turns up to claim him, she decides to adopt him. She soon finds outthat it had been train...
This movie is pretty good, only it seemed more like a made-for-TV moviethan something you'd expect to see in a theater. The acting is justmediocre at best. The only thing I can see that would keep this off ofTV is the language. There are a few G.D.'s in it, which was notsomething you heard regularly...
White Dog should not have been banned for the reason of being racist!As an African American, I saw no sign of racism in this movie.Actually, I wish this movie had made the big screen for all Americansto see. The truth of how bigots actually train their pets and childrento be racist should be shown a...
I think a big part of truly understanding this movie is to understand aquote Samuel Fuller said, "It was a battleground of alienated humanenergies pursuing their private obsession to human exhaustion." Thisquote came from him after describing the film movement and itsdirectors called The French New ...
**SPOILERS**Undoubtly director Samuel Fullers most controversial filmin fact so controversial that it wasn't theatrically released in theUSA in fear of starting race riots in and out of the movie-houses. Thefilm "White Dog" is actually a voice of reason against racism inshowing through its animal st...
This is one of those films you just have to see to believe. And I wouldhave NEVER seen it if it wasn't presented on the Los Angeles Based "Z"Channel in 80's...For those who aren't familiar with the Los Angeles based "Z" Channel-it was way ahead of its time and came into big stride when I got toCalif...
In Samuel Fuller's controversial 1982, 'White Dog,' allegory andsymbolism are used to examine how racism is constructed and perpetuatedwithin our culture. Utilizing his trademark cold and detachedentomologist approach to the story, Fuller uses broad strokes andrecognizable archetypes to get across h...
White Dog is a polarizing, criminally underrated commentary on racismas a curable way of thinking. The most dehumanizing thing you could doto a race is view them as stereotypical caricatures and writer-directorSamuel Fuller recognized this when he made this film. Therefore, totell his unconventional...
