The Power of the Dog

The Power of the Dog ★★★★½

Adapted from Thomas Savage’s novel of the same name, Jane Campion's THE POWER OF THE DOG is an evocative & haunting western, that will linger long after the credits. A nuanced and quietly-riveting dissection of corrosive masculinity & repressed desire, made all the more tense and unsettling by a sublime score from Jonny Greenwood. And it features the greatest performance of Benedict Cumberbatch's career, his character Phil Burbank might the most fascinating cinematic character this year.
