The Power of the Dog Low Key

    • Society & Culture

Spoilers abound as we discuss Jane Campion's masterful Western/Hitchcockian thriller The Power of the Dog. It's the rare movie that turns out at the end to be a completely different movie — and even in a completely different genre — than we thought at the beginning. 
We explore questions like: 
—who or what "the dog" of the title is
—performative masculinity
—whether there's a bad guy
—Peter's sexuality
—whether Rose was ever good at piano
We hope you enjoy listening this conversation as much as we enjoyed having it.
