A Boy and His Dog 1975
The plot of this film is set in Arizona in the year 2024 A.D. The world had been devastated by nuclear war seventeen years ago, and the surface of the Earth is turned into desert, roamed by various drifters in search of food, drink and shelter. One of them is Vic (played by a very young and rosy-cheeked Don Johnson), eighteen-year-old boy whose only companion is Blood (voice by Tim McIntire), dog with whom he has telepathic connection. Blood's instincts, wisdom, knowledge experience help Vic in his everyday search for food, but so far Vic can't find the only thing on his mind - a girl. Finally, two of them stumble on a girl in the form of young Quilla June Holmes (played by Susan Benton) and rescue her from homicidal rapists and mutants. After a night of passionate love Quilla disappears and Vic, against Blood's better judgement, goes looking for her in the underground, where some remnants of civilisation survived and turned into grotesque version of ultraconservative America...

Extras:

-- Commentary with Director L.Q. Jones actually also includes Los Angeles Times film critic Charles Champlin and A Boy and His Dog's cinematographer John Arthur Morrill. Overall this is a nice piece of reminiscing full of both technical and anecdotal data.

-- In Conversation: Director L.Q. Jones and Writer Harlan Ellison (1080p; 51:03). These two icons, who have a long and somewhat tempestuous history between them, have smoked the figurative peace pipe and give a wonderfully funny, acerbic and insightful look back on how the film came to be and some of the troubles it engendered between the two.
