This allegorical film by Robert Downey finds humans all playing the role of animals in cages as they wait to be gassed. Flashbacks are used to tell the character's fantasies outside the cage. It is hard to tell if the characters are supposed to be animals, although a depressed prized fighter plays a boxer and a bald man is supposedly a Mexican hairless. Robert Downey Jr. makes an early film appearance as a puppy. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Part wacky comedy (with plenty of jailhouse humping), part existential allegory, Pound betrays its stage-play roots with too much actorly grandstanding but is peppered with ecstatic funk-powered freak-outs."
‑ Ed Halter, Village Voice
"The dog-human switcheroo isn't as straightforward as it should be"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
