"Expertly playing with our preconceived notions, Granik's multidimensional portrait also serves as a telling state-of-the-union address, as seen through the caring eyes of her philosophical main subject."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times
"Stray Dog isn't so much a movie about trauma as it is about people trying to make meaningful lives out of whatever pieces they've been given."
- Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
"It's a film that starts as a character study and builds into something much larger."
- Ben Kenigsberg, AV Club
"It would be easy to say Granik offers a portrait of redneck life in "Stray Dog," but even allowing for Hill's guns and skepticism about government, it's clear such an oversimplified cultural cliché can't begin to describe the reality here."
- Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
