Boy and His Dog, A (1978, USA) C-90m. SCOPE ** D: L.Q. Jones. Starring Don Johnson, Susanne Benton, Jason Robards, voice of Tim McIntire. Terminally weird (and slow) post-apocalyptic cult movie about drifter Johnson who is looking for women in barren landscape ravaged by World War IV. His dog speaks to him telepathically - mostly cynical wisecracks. Then he discovers a secret society, who are in need of young men. The budget was too low to make this convincing, nevertheless this has a cult following.
