Synopsis

A Little Vicious, about a dog “with ties to the pit bull family,” was nominated for an Oscar in 1992.

The New York Post called it a “superb... splendid little comedy” that “shows how racism and class prejudice affect our perceptions of something as seemingly uncomplicated as a dog”; The New York Times praised the “literary quality of this offbeat documentary,” which “pays rewarding attention to the little peculiarities of all involved.”
