"...a beautifully photographed and expertly edited day in the life of Winthrop lobster fisherman ploying their endangered trade. Devoid of any commentary beyond the playlist of the oldies radio station the crew is listening to, it employs the minimalist and illuminating style of documentaries like 'Sweetgrass.'"
- Peter Keough - The Boston Phoenix, 2/9/11

"...a striking film, with no dialogue, brilliant lighting and camera shots as slick as the decks the fishermen stood on. Salty Dogs is a smoothly minimalist film, where narrative is not as important as the minutiae of a day in these fisherman's lives. The film doesn't suffer from the lack of a solid plot; instead, its strengthened by the honest portrayal of the boredom and repetitive beauty of life on the sea."
- Paul Squire - buquad.com, 2/13/11
