re: Power of the dog
Yeah I was the same way, searched TD and found this thread.

That shite ain't for me. Couldn't make it beyond the first hour but I read the synopsis and that ain't a western.

Very good acting and direction but it stops there. Takes place in 1925 Montana but was filmed in New Zealand all Kiwis.

Once you see it you will know why they set the story in Montana and not their own country.

This is not even close in story to Open Range or Lonesome Dove. No surprise, PotD is another liberal enterprise. But we’ll-acted.

Has a solid neo-Oscar resume — big actor, big vista, plodding, brooding, a foreign film company and all the LGB you could ask for.

The more I think about this movie, I really like it. One of the best movies of the year in my opinion

What? Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are kiwis? Does kiwi refer to someone from Texas? British people are kiwis? Hell, even Australians (like Kodi Smit-McPhee) are not kiwis.

I had no idea these were the only two westerns that counted as westerns. Of the literal hundreds of movies considered westerns that I've seen, very few look and feel like the two movies you mentioned.

As I've said elsewhere, I have plenty of issue with this movie, but you've made a checklist of "problems" that make little sense.


Can you explain "neo-Oscar"? Does this refer to post-1999 Matrix winning a bunch of "below the line" categories and forever changing the perception of genre movies to older Oscar voters? Is this post-1997 Neon Genesis Evangelion being shut out of the animated feature category that didn't yet exist? The neo-noir fad of the 1970s after the Oscar success of Chinatown? Does this refer to an imagined woke state of the Oscar winners that only makes sense if you look only at the 2017 best picture winner and literally no other year in recent history? Or did you maybe not think through what you were typing?
