The Power of the Dog

Brought to life by a stellar ensemble led by Benedict Cumberbatch, The Power of the Dog reaffirms writer-director Jane Campion as one of her generation's finest filmmakers.

"The Power of the Dog is a made with artistry and command: it is one of Jane Campion's best." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★

Severe, pale-eyed, handsome, Phil Burbank is brutally beguiling. All of Phil's romance, power and fragility is trapped in the past and in the land: He can castrate a bull calf with two swift slashes of his knife; he swims naked in the river, smearing his body with mud. He is a cowboy as raw as his hides. The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress, and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, reveling in their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter -- all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her. As Phil swings between fury and cunning, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form -- he hovers at the edges of her vision, whistling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil's cowhand disciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot twisting further into menace?


"Superb direction, a carefully calibrated screenplay and an excellent supporting cast make this awards catnip." - Toronto Star

"Campion builds the tension slowly and emphatically, telegraphing the perils ahead. Yet when the two-edged climax comes it's powerfully unexpected." - Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail ★★★★

"[Its] themes of isolation and toxic masculinity are an ever-tightening lasso of seemingly innocuous events, and they import more horror and meaning on every closer inspection, corralling viewers under an unforgettable spell." - Robert Daniels, Polygon

"The mystery of the seen and unseen lies at the heart of 'The Power of the Dog,' Jane Campion's brilliantly acted, insidiously gripping adaptation of Thomas Savage's 1967 novel." - Los Angeles Times
