The Will Smith/Chris Rock thing wasn't the most shocking part of the Oscars (for me).

More shocking than that was the fact that The Power Of The Dog was up for so many awards. I just finished watching it. Holy crap, what a snooze-fest. I wish I could have those two hours of my life back.

That is all.

Well, after I posted I did a search here on the forum and it appears I may be in the minority. Several members had high praise for it, so I guess it might be just me.

No, it’s not. It blew major chunks.

I haven't seen it, bot I do have substantial respect for Jane Campion. SO gave it a good review.

I thought it was a worthy effort..tough story to tell properly, I liked the choices Campion made and i loved that it left you hanging out there with regard to what was coming with dear Phil..cause you knew something was coming...bit of a surprise-- excellent cinematography over pretty dark stuff, a measured study of stoicism, fear, homophobia..a modern western but everything is about as old school Western as it comes..lots of space and air in a very dense story and presentation, I like movies like that. It feels good to shake off that conditioning we have for the constant rattle of external stimulation,...got through it with no scars or snoozes or chunk blowing...lordy.

Read it first then watched, the book was a more satisfying experience.

though I thought the players were good, I could have been vacuuming.
and of course, Montana never looked so good as in New Zealand.

Reference for cinephiles; Power of the Dog is Ingmar Bergman Out West.





"Bergman's films are known as 'profoundly personal meditations into the myriad struggles facing the psyche and the soul.'"

Very, very possibly one of my top ten films.

Being conservative, I’d guess something incredible happened somewhere around at least every five minutes in this movie.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

We watched it several months back. It's one of those movies that puzzles you a bit while you are watching.

After you think about it awhile you get a better understanding of the intricacies of the stories and realize it is a good movie.

It sounds like it may be a cinemaphile's movie, but not for those who like modern hollywood tripey tropisms.... I haven't watched it on good advice because my personal reviewer stated "It's so slow and nothing happens."

I expect I'd fall asleep, but I'm not one to be taken in by scenery usually in movies. Action, drama, people saying and doing things, frequently.
