My Dog Tulip October 20, 2010 My Dog Tulip is the critically acclaimed animated film about a man's relationship with his dog that played in movie theaters across the country. In The Philadelphia Inquirer, Steven Rea's review of the film said, "OK, first off, anyone who shares his or her life with a dog, or has done so in the past, go see My Dog Tulip. Second off, anyone with a passion for animation, and an appreciation of how "cartooning" can frequently take the viewer to emotional and psychological realms with greater facility than live action, go see My Dog Tulip. Thirdly, fans of J.R. Ackerley, the British editor and man of letters whose memoir about his decade-plus relationship with a German shepherd is the matter at hand . . . well, go see My Dog Tulip."
