Heart of a Dog is a personal essay film that explores themes of love, death and language.

"Haunting and celebratory at once, Heart of a Dog ultimately amounts to a contemplation of mortality."
- Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"One of the best films of the year."
- G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"In combining video, surveillance footage and her own 8mm family memories, Heart of a Dog quickly accesses a realm of ideas that vault it far higher than mere sentiment would allow."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Heart Of A Dog is at turns a haunting, hilarious, muddled, disparate, and deeply emotional film about a woman, her dog, their bond, and the deaths that continue that haunt her."
- The Playlist, Gary Garrison
"Weaving together stories of death with observations on the post-9/11 culture of surveillance, Heart of a Dog hints that the very language on which Anderson has built her career as a performance artist is finally inadequate in the face of mortality."
- Pat Padua, Washington Post
