Blu-ray Review - Baxter


"Baxter" is a 1989 French production adapting the general strangeness of a 1977 book, "Hell Hound."

It's dark material brought to the screen by director Jerome Boivin (who co-scripts with Jacques Audiard), who tries to bring viewers inside the mind of a dangerous yet curious canine, yet avoid horror film formula in the process. "Baxter" is a bizarre endeavor, never quite reaching its thematic goals, but it does have some interesting scenes of mental illness to keep it involving. Read the rest at
