Sun Dogs 

click to enlarge film_rec-1.jpg

Beyond the slacker-friendly premise of a hard-drinking serial plasma donor who hangs out with a pyromaniac teen and pursues a troubled girl, Jason Affolder's Sun Dogs is a smart independent film about the hard and soft knocks of life. Affolder made the film in New Orleans on a shoestring budget and has what could be the bayou version of Clerks, without the gratuitous vulgarity. It's his first feature-length film and shows evidence of great talent with cinematography and moments of brilliance in the story and script. It's also rough enough around the edges to feel fresh and a little bit raw. Tickets $7 at the door, $5 in advance. — Will Coviello
