“Dogleg is a little wonder of a film. It’s wry, hilarious, and strange.” —William Boyle, Southwest Review
“Dogleg follows amateur director Alan after he loses his fiancé’s dog at a gender reveal party on the day of an important shoot. As he struggles to finish his latest project with the help of a New York critic, the pursuit of the lost dog and the chaos of his film begin to blend and Alan grows desperate for the day to be over… Dogleg is an ode to indie filmmaking and the frustrations of the creative process… a surreal comedy of errors that pokes fun at the absurdity of ambition.” —firstshowing.net
