The Power of the Dog

The Power of the Dog ★★★★½

The thing about the artform of movies is that it is only this distinct combination of visuals, lighting, sound, art design, performance, editing and narrative flow that can make something as straightforward as a single shot of a key turning slowly in a lock so goddamned full of sex, suspense, fear, envy, isolation, longing, exclusion and excitement, and that once that door is locked, the people on either side of it are forever changed. 

Oh there’s more, so much more.
