Straw Dogs: The Criterion Collection

In this thriller, perhaps Sam Peckinpah's most controversial film, David (Dustin Hoffman, a young American mathematician, moves with his English wife, Amy (Susan George), to the village where she grew up. Their sense of safety unravels as the local men David has hired to repair their house prove more interested in leering at Amy and intimidating David, beginning an agonizing initiation into the iron law of violent masculinity that govern Peckinpah's world. Working outside the U.S. for the first time, the filmmaker airlifts the ruthless 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.
