Heart of a Dog is multimedia performance artist Laurie Anderson’s brave and stirring tribute to her dog, Lolabelle.  It’s a deeply personal, transfixing film. Anderson conceived the film, created the animated segments, rigged up the dog-cam shots, dove into family home movies and, with the help of her late-husband, singer-songwriter Lou Reed, composed a simple, achingly beautiful musical score, as a way of illuminating the stages of love and loss that all dog lovers experience. (75 minutes)

AN EXPERIMENTAL MARVEL! Deeply Funny and Touching. -The LA Times

WILDLY INVENTIVE! Philosophically Astute. Emotionally Charged. -The NY Times

SPELLBINDING! Smart, Silly, Sad and Relentlessly Honest. One of the most moving and provocative films you’ll see this year. -New York Magazine

Sparkles with Laurie Anderson’s wisdom and wit. -Chicago Tribune

File Laurie Anderson’s “Heart of a Dog” under documentary, but that seems to miss the point. If it were in a bookstore, you might find it in the poetry section. Or try philosophy, photography or essay. For it is all of those things, and one more: ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR. –San Francisco Chronicle
