A boy, his dog and a whole lot of guns.
The Troma Team is proud to present Robert Loomis’ Dog Years, the “postmodern punk farce” that Variety called “a fitfully amusing micro-budget indie (that) recalls the early efforts of Jim Jarmusch and Hal Hartley.” Dog Years certainly warrants such praise and more. It manifests a dark, violent sense of humor similar to Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs set within a more touching and humane premise.
Wally Newton is just your typical boot and brace kind of skinhead kid, who has no goal in life expect to take his Dalmatian Neechee out of the occasional walk. But when Wally can’t even do that without some half-assed drug dealer giving Neechee a kick, Wally goes aggro and puts a boot to the head of the wrong doing miscreant. As ends any good fight, everyone is thrown in jail and Neechee is dognapped by gangsters who believe Wally has gaffled their misplaced drug loot. The austere and stoic head hitman Durante is unrelenting in his mission to destroy Wally and recover the missing cash. Wally begins an insane adventure to rescue his pooch and do in the evil gangsters.
Self-reflective, moody and nihilistically funny, Dog Years, with its talented cast, takes us on a thrilling and sometimes surreal journey with one unusual boy, the search for his faithful super-dog and the incredible danger along the way.
