The Power of the Dog

The Power of the Dog ★★★★

Be prepared to add another movie to your watchlist because The Power of The Dog is one of the best movies of 2021 so far.

A harrowing tale of toxic masculinity that features some really strong performances from all 4 leads, the directing from Jane Campion is impeccable as the filmmaking is very precise & polished, the lush & untamed landscape of the movie is captured beautifully by DP Ari Wegner, & Jonny Greenwood's musical score is ethereal, watching the characters slowly develop was very exciting & well paced. 

My one big complaint is that i wished the other leads besides Cumberbatch got more screentime so we could see more of their power dynamic but overall this was better than i expected & as an added bonus i got to see Cumberbatch's barenaked ass covered in mud. An absolute must-see of 2021.
