If you caught director Kelly Reichardt's 2006 art-house hit Old Joy, you know what she's up to here: a poetically spare and intimate character study of a young drifter (a heartrending Michelle Williams) and her dog, who amble into one bad break after another in Wendy and Lucy. Bring Kleenex. It has 
 the saddest actor/mutt coda since Umberto D. EXTRAS include four avant-garde shorts. B+
