Movies Boy And His Dog, A (1975, Don Johnson, Susanne Benton) Published 8 months ago on September 19, 2018 Low budget sci-fi adventure A Boy And His Dog, starring Miami Vice’s Don Johnson, is now a cult classic with one of the best endings in the history of cult movies, and a must for every serious film lover. In a post-apocalyptic world in the year 2024, life in Arizona is grim and dangerous as individuals struggle to survive among the detritus of the after effects of nuclear war. Anarchy rules and young Vic (Don Johnson) has to rely on his dog, Blood, with whom he communicates telepathically, to help him fight his way through each day. But teenager Vic isn’t only interested in finding food and shelter, and the nuclear war hasn’t done much to lower his testosterone levels. After he spies on a young woman, Quilla June (Susanne Benton), in a basement for some time she finally agrees to sleep with him then leads him to an underground community of puritans led by Lou Craddock (Jason Robards). Here the men are all sterile, so Vic has the dubious pleasure of impregnating the underground females… Critical and ironic, A Boy and His Dog parodies American society, the underground community being a thinly disguised representation of a suppressed, conservative and unhappy world reminiscent of parts of 1970s America. With the hero transforming into amoral anti-hero, director Jones has produced a dark, comic tale with echoes of a Sam Peckinpah western; not surprising as Jones acted in both The Wild Bunch and Ride the High Country before moving to the other side of the camera.
