We have another L.A. Film Fest exclusive this week, in advance of the festival's kick off on Thursday with Pedro Almodovar's "I'm So Excited." We've already seen a teaser from the doc "Levitated Mass" and a clip from the drama "Winter In The Blood," and today we've got a fierce and funny firefight against... dogs? Don't worry, it's only an imagined one and it comes from the mind of young Oliver, a struggling actor practicing a monologue against the background soundtrack of his dog-sitting charges, from the narrative competition entry "Four Dogs."

Four Dogs

We have another L.A. Film Fest exclusive this week, in advance of the festival's kick off on Thursday with Pedro Almodovar's "I'm So Excited." We've already seen a teaser from the doc "Levitated Mass" and a clip from the drama "Winter In The Blood," and today we've got a fierce and funny firefight against... dogs? Don't worry, it's only an imagined one and it comes from the mind of young Oliver, a struggling actor practicing a monologue against the background soundtrack of his dog-sitting charges, from the narrative competition entry "Four Dogs." 

Oliver (Oliver Cooper) is a struggling Los Angeles actor, making ends meet by dog-sitting for his aunt and passing his time practicing his acting and hanging with his acting class buddy Dan (Dan Bakkedahl, you know him as the particularly unctuous Roger Furlong on "Veep"). The quirky comedy is directed by Joe Burke and written and produced by Burke and Cooper, and it looks to be a naturalistic and humorous send-up of the life of a struggling actor. 

Here's the official synopsis (more info at the official website) and check out the exclusive clip below. The language is fairly NSFW, so headphones on. "Four Dogs" will have its first screening on Sunday, June 16th at Regal Cinemas 12 at 5 PM. 

His Hollywood dreams in a slump, Oliver bumbles through his days hanging with an acting school buddy and tending to his aunt’s yappy dogs in this surprising, delightful rumination on the absurd and hilarious things we go through to find ourselves.
