Directed by Sam Peckinpah | 1971

With Dustin Hoffman, Susan George, Peter Vaughan

Pushing the envelope with its ultra-violence, Peckinpah’s polarizing dissection of tormented masculinity and marital strife features Dustin Hoffman in a harrowing performance as Professor David Sumner, a meek American mathematician who moves with his wife to her hometown of Cornwall, England. While the pastoral landscapes seem like refuge from the chaos of Vietnam War-era America, Sumner is soon forced to grapple with his disintegrating marriage and the increasingly brutal resentment of the locals. Culminating in an ever-controversial orgy of movie violence, Straw Dogs is driven by an Oscar-nominated score by the underrated composer Jerry Fielding, who highlights the onscreen brutality with assaults of strings and bagpipes. “A savage exploration of brutality. Jerry Fielding’s melancholy score mirrors the characters’ inner turmoil” (John Carpenter).
