One night, an actress Julie Sawyer finds an injured stray dog. She decides to take care of him till the owner is found, not knowing that the dog is a "White Dog" a term used for dogs trained to attack black people. After the dog attacks an actress on the set, Julie decides to train the dog not to attack with the help of Keys, an animal expert. Will they be successful?
Samuel Fuller's masterpiece has often been misunderstood by the audience as a racist film. Well, White Dog was surprisingly amazing yet very simple. Fuller created a thought-provoking film on racism through a strange medium: a dog. I have to admit that this film was very clever and the way it told the story was pretty impressive. With many close-up and slow-motion shots Fuller created a great film experience that was both shocking and thrilling. Ennio Morricone's score was great too and the screenplay was the best. And the way he ended the film really makes us think about the world we live in. Fuller attempts to give us an answer to the question: Can Racism be banished? His answer is yes and no. Well it is up to us to decide what path we want to choose. But nevertheless, White Dog is a highly underrated classic and thanks to Criterion Collection, we can see this film again which was banned some years ago.
I urge everyone to see this film. It's just great. Highly Recommended...
