Baxter (1989) was a crazy film from France. It's about a Bull terrier that thinks like a human. He's a mean dog that only cares about himself and no one else. Baxter had several different masters (they include an elderly shut in and a young couple with a baby) and he cares about none of them. One day he finds a boy who he takes a liking to. The boy makes him very aggressive and runs him ragged. But the kid tries to turn him into something he's not (after witnessing him defend his master from an angry dog), a trained killer. The kid soon begins to neglects Baxter and he turns to other activities that don't include his dog. Tired of the boy, his weird fetishes and smelling his weakness, Baxter decides to take him out. But he doesn't get to do the job and his eliminated. Whilst Baxter expires, his memory will always live on.

A great intellectual thriller about a dog with a human brain. I loved the stark realism that the film makers brought to the table. They could have easily fumbled the ball and made a flat out terrible film. Underrated and neglected.
