Allan Arkush on

Best In Show

Released 2000
Distributor Castle Rock Entertainment

Best in Show continues director Christopher Guest’s series of satirical documentaries on the American institutions that attract some of our country’s finest eccentrics (we’re waiting for him to tackle comic con). Guest has built an informal repertory company around some of our best and brightest comedians and the gang’s all here including Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy and Michael McKean. Levy co-wrote this gentle broadside at dog shows and the obsessive behavior of the human participants, leaving only the dogs to retain their dignity.
