Working outside the U.S. for the first time, the filmmaker airlifts the ruthlessness of the western frontier into Cornwall in Straw Dogs, pushing his characters to their breaking points as the men brutalize Amy and David discovers how far he'll go to protect his home--culminating in a harrowing climax that lays out this cinematic mastermind's eloquent and bloody vision of humanity"--Container
