The Power Of The Dog (Netflix streaming):

Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

There is slow and methodical, and then there is excruciating painfully slow. This movie is the latter. What is trying to pass as a build-up that takes patience, is a method of torture that is probably banned by the Geneva Conventions.

I will state, that the actors are great in it, but they are handcuffed by the direction of this movie. I love “Das Boot” (full version) where oftentimes NOTHING happens for a good hour, but at least there is something there. Doesn’t happen here. Please, don’t even bother with this one. What a waste of time.
