I just watched “The Power of the Dog”, the new film by Jane Campion and starring Benedict Cumberbatch. This film has already won a few awards and is receiving rave reviews. Well, I was not as impressed. I found it slow and the characters were not relatable or interesting. Cumberbatch, sporting an American accent, plays a nasty ranch owner during the 1920’s. He doesn’t have many redeeming qualities. The character is very different from anyone he has played before. Everyone underplays and they are somewhat boring. I cannot recommend this movie.
