Director's Comments

This film was my entry into the Friendships and Rivalries (FAR) competition run by brickfilms.com in 2008. It tells the story of a homeless man who's life completely changes when he finds a stray dog in an alley. My longest film to date, both in length and the amount of time from scripting to finished product (about 5 months). Enjoy!

Staff Reviews

Jay Harris:
Towards the beginning of watching Man's Best Friend last year while sifting through the FAR entries, I was impressed. The main character was likable, the story was moving along well, and even though the technical aspects were a bit sub-par, it was enjoyable. Unfortunately, the film jumps off of the tracks heading towards a nice, conclusive ending and instead barrels off into a completely mood-breaking final scene that in my opinion all but ruins the charming opening. Although the film ends up taking itself too seriously, Munzapoppa does manage to hold the viewer for four and a half minutes.
