A Boy and His Dog exists on the cinematic map somewhere between A Clockwork Orange and Monty Python, with a tone similar to Kurt Vonnegut. It's also a successful adaptation of a novella by Harlan Ellison, one of the great treasures of modern sf literature.
Unfortunately, some of the negligent misogyny that helped make this film subversive in 1975 doesn't hold up so well in 2018. On the other hand, it's a good example of the risk-taking avant garde psychedelia of its era, and the dialogue is genuinely clever and funny most of the time.

This movie was terrible. “Dumb, boring and stupid” Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power.

One of the most Disappointing -Unwatchable films I’ve ever seen this year. Really a dumb movie. "I fast forwarded all the way."

Want to know where the world we've come to think of as populated solety by Mad Max and his crew came from? It's from this great little movie first penned as a novella by the master of "Alternative Fiction" Harlan Ellison. If you can't appreciate a young Don Johnson being upstaged by a dog in a war ravaged world of 2024, you just haven't got your funny/irony bone hooked up.
