The Power Of The Dog (2021)

A cinematic origami flower crafted with razor intricacy by a mythological Campion, TPOTD is a masterfully-acted/directed slow-burn on toxic masculinity, isolation, and psychosexual repression in the rawhide palisades of the 1920’s Old West – boasting, quite arguably, the greatest performance of Benedict Cumberbatch’s entire 87+ project filmography. 9.2/10.

Plot Synopsis: A domineering rancher responds with mocking cruelty when his brother brings home a new wife and her son, until the unexpected comes to pass.
