Weird cult sci-fi fantasia from the 70's about, well, a boy & his dog roaming the post-apocalyptic landscape of America searching for food and other survivors. The twist is that the boy and his dog can have telepathic conversations with each other.
The plot actually deserved a better movie, I personally found it quite boring, lifted only by the occasional moments of dark comedy and though the ending is misogynistic irony at its best (or worst, depending on your comedy tastes), it seems to take an age to get there. The dog steals the movie, but this is nothing like Lassie.
