A Boy and His Dog (1975)

Free Great Movies Review

  •  (3 out of 5 stars)

It's a weird and wacky post-apocalyptic future in the sci-fi flick A Boy and His Dog (1975). Don Johnson stars as the boy Vic who telepathically communicates with his dog Blood (voiced by Tim McIntire). They roam through the desert of post-nuclear war America in the year 2024. Vic isn't too bright and is just looking to get laid, while his dog Blood provides plenty of sarcastic witticisms. This post-apocalyptic future is a total mess filled with garbage sets and filthy raiders who watch porno films projected outdoors. Vic finally tracks down a girl to sleep with named Quilla June Holmes (Susanne Benton). He falls for her and follows her down to an underground society of clown-faced weirdos led by Jason Robards. They force Vic to electro-ejaculate and artificially inseminate females. Quilla June and Vic escape and reunite with their dog Blood. If you're not sure what to make of this mess, you're not alone. Writer/director L.Q. Jones hasn't created a visionary post-apocalyptic success like the Mad Max movies, and it's hard to say what sort of message he is trying to convey. The film is based on Harlan Ellison's 1969 novella and Ellison generally liked the movie.
