    Bronco Henry is trending. LOL

    rewatch the movie and take a shot of vodka everytime Broncho Henry is mentioned. You’ll be ok. Trust me.

    I just watched it today and LOVED it. I read people saying it lacked emotional punch, or that the ending sucked (?). I actually think it was fascinating to watch, and the lack of emotional punch was kind of the point? It was unsettling from beggining to end, really tense and on the edge. It was actually great.

    Campion is the MVP in the movie and i hope it wins best director.

    Also, cinematography, original score and some acting awards too.

    It should win BP but it wont

    Anne Thompson wrote a great article about TPOTD where she interviewed Jane Campion:

    https://www.indiewire.com/2021/12/netflix-the-power-of-the-dog-jane-campion-woman-directing-oscar-1234680280/

    There are a couple of very interesting things. The first one is about Peter’s “catwalk” scene:

    Take the scene when Peter walks in his giant-brimmed cowboy hat past a line of hooting cowboys — and then walks back again. Is he being provocative? “That scene haunted me because it is so brilliant [in the novel],” said Campion. “There was a change. And Phil called him over. It’s more to do with his courage, and his cool about, OK, being called out as a ‘faggot.’ And Phil knows who he is. And the boy’s handling it and he’s walking straight back down, not around or anything else. Phil’s impressed.”

    The second is about the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch. I think that those who say he’s miscast didn’t get this point:

    She needed an actor who could carry the scenes when Phil takes off his grubby cowboy gear and finds solace swimming alone, lying on the grass in his grotto, drawing a soft scarf across his bare chest. “She cast somebody who could be vulnerable in that sacred place,” said Seghatchian, “and open up and allow the memory of Bronco Henry to feel real. She made the decision not to show Bronco Henry on screen. It had to be somebody who could hold that close in their head and allow us to have access. The capacity to love was part of who Phil is. In terms of Benedict’s capacity to act, she knew he could do the technical challenges of being an American cowboy.”

    Cumberbatch’s sensitivity in the 2012 BBC drama “Parade’s End” caught Campion’s attention. “I’m pretty sure a lot of men can do the outer gruff stuff,” she said. “But can they go to the other place? The thing I love about Phil is he’s a lover. He takes risks for it. That he falls in a way for Peter or has love in his heart is one reason why you can handle his character, as he is stretching into something else.”

    At least the film is generating a lot of discussion hey?!

    I note that Belfast lost all it’s 11 noms at BIFA after having been snubbed for picture, director & screenplay, and of course, if you criticise it, you’re a Dog Stan.

    It does show Belfast is vulnerable, and that’s why we are seeing a lot about Dog not being popular or crowd pleasing enough.

    What do you all think of the theory that Phil killed Broncho Henry? It makes sense to me since Peter is mini Phil

    He’s not mini Phil just because he saw the dog.

    I cannot get this film out of my head. It keeps opening up to me more and more. A masterpiece, I would say.

    Strong performance at Atlanta including best director, actor, supporting actress (Dunst’s first win!) and cinematography, but lost picture to pizza.

    It’s difficult to say what a masterpiece is. I certainly don’t use the term lightly. TPOTD is an interesting film, but it’s a bit to gloomy for my taste. It’s depressing and I didn’t relate to any of the characters. It left me cold.

    ‘The Power Of The Dog’ Has Loud Bark In U.S. Households For Netflix

    That’s a great start for what is essentially a two-hour-and-six-minute arthouse title, higher than HBO Max’s first weekend of King Richard by 70%
