“Dogman is one of the best Italian films of recent times, a modern-day neorealist fable that bears comparison with the great work of Fellini, Rossellini, De Sica et al.” – Geoffry MacNab, The Independent
“Matteo Garrone’s Dogman is a compelling opera of beta-male criminal martyrdom.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
