White God (2015), Kornél Mundruczó ★★★

White God turns out to be more interesting and entertaining than you’d think and just rises above cheesy movie clichés by shifting the pov from the antagonist daughter to the animal himself, actually played by two dogs found in Arizona (Luke and Body) just before the owner was going to take them to the pound. It’s said that a world record 274 dogs were used in this film, and a paragraph at the beginning says all non-trained dogs were rescued and adopted out after filming. Now that I think about it, there was one disclaimer that I didn’t see, and may have missed it.
