Los Angeles Film Festival 2014: 'Stray Dog' Review

Director Debra Granik previously made Down to the Bone (which launched Vera Farmiga) and Winter's Bone (which launched Jennifer Lawrence). Her new movie is her first documentary, about a Vietnam vet named Ron "Stray Dog" Hall. It's called Stray Dog, and it's quite lovely. (Incidentally, it would make a fine double-feature with Rich Hill, and not just because they're both set in Missouri.) My review of Stray Dog is up at Screen International.
