"Dogman" begins as a compelling morality tale about the price of loyalty and personal compromise, but turns out to be a strangely indeterminate - and numbingly familiar - portrait of human nature at its most bestial and self-defeating.
At its best, when we can live "Dogman" through Marcello's eyes, the movie keeps reminding you of that opening, of people and animals, menace and kindness, and the cages we sometimes don't realize we've made for ourselves.
Marcello may remain a mystery, but the thing that makes Dogman worth checking out is the actor who portrays him. It's a performance that never barks too loudly, but leaves you with an unmistakable bite.
The lead performance, from the mostly unknown Fonte, is a small symphony of crumbling ingratiation: the portrait of a good man trying to cling to his principles in the face of stubborn, selfish immorality.
