Cold Dog Soup
Directed by Alan Metter • 1990 • United Kingdom
Starring Randy Quaid, Frank Whaley, Christine Harnos
A Zen taxi driver, a dead dog, and one memorably surreal night . . . This singularly eccentric black comedy casts Randy Quaid as the enigmatic, koan-spouting cabbie whose fare for the night (Frank Whaley), having accidentally killed his sexy date’s pooch, is now desperate to dispose of the body. So begins a continuously strange and surprising odyssey through the weirdo fringes of New York City by night that plays something like the long-lost indie cousin of Martin Scorsese’s AFTER HOURS.
