The Power of the Dog / My Review

“Deliver my soul from the sword,
my precious life from the power of the dog!”

The Power of the Dog / the Book.

This is not a Western.
Yeah it’s got cowboy hats and horses and such …
but as I said in my preview, this appears to be more a
psychological drama than a Western.

I was right.

The Setting could be anywhere really.
And I understand what is being said …
and performances are great.
It’s a tough and lonely world when you’re isolated by your sexuality.
But I found this to be very uncomfortable movie to watch.
And I didn’t feel this Movie was adding anything to me.
And I am responsible for whatever I permit into my consciousness.

If I had been in a Theatre I would have walked out.

And it’s loooong ……… 2 and a half hours.
Whew …

I know this will get a lot of great reviews from Critics.
But … don’t say I didn’t tell you.

  1. Jcalberta, I really have to disagree with you on this one 🙂 I absolutely loved The Power of the Dog – for me, it comes off as a thought-provoking psychological western – though I would probably have to do a review on it since their is so much for me to comprehend here 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

  2. You’re right. I’ve turned off an walked out on a lot of so-called ‘entertainment’ in the last while.
    There seems to be some twisted ethic that ‘extreme’ is a notch up. It’s not.
    Because of this, I’m thankful for Netflix – it’s saved me a lot of money, wasted time, and from
    ingesting unpalatable stuff.
