This film by the musician and visual artist Laurie Anderson about the passing of her piano-playing dog Lolabelle might be a bit loose at times in terms of its structure, but its ruminations on grief and emotions are certainly and clearly presented. It also incorporates Anderson’s thoughts on 9/11, so it seems like there are some ideas contained here that have been kicking around for some time, not that that’s a criticism or anything – it may be that the opportunity to discuss such matters publicly has only just presented itself to Anderson, whose strong score accompanies the film.
