    Laurie Anderson's "Heart of a Dog" Named to New York Times Year's Best Movies List

    Laurie Anderson's new film, Heart of a Dog, has been named one of the Best Movies of 2015 by the New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, landing at No. 4 on his list of favorites.

    "A meditation on love, loss and the meaning of life," Scott writes. "Dog people and Lou Reed fans will be especially susceptible (I plead guilty on both counts), but anyone who ever had a heart is likely to succumb to Ms. Anderson’s ethereal wisdom and her fierce formal wit."

    Read A.O. Scott's complete list and those of his fellow Times critics at nytimes.com.

    Heart of a Dog continues its run at theaters across the United States, opening on still more screens this coming weekend, including the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, where Anderson will take part in Q&A sessions at select screenings this weekend.

    The soundtrack recording, including all music and spoken text, is out now on Nonesuch Records, available on iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where it's now 15% off the everyday low price listed on the site as part of our ongoing sale.
