Tribute to Sam Peckinpah - Straw Dogs (1971)

KETELHUIS | Online €5 | Kassa €6

One of the most controversial films ever made.

Tribute to Sam Peckinpah
Sam Peckinpah was one of the greatest and most original directors in the history of Hollywood, but it took decades until he finally got his due. Peckinpah forever changed action cinema, and he inserted both a dark edge and a vulnerable humanity into the Western genre. He created a stock company of some of the finest character actors of his time. And he was a total asshole, a huge pain in the ass, and a completely self-destructive drunk. They called him Bloody Sam. During April we will screen four of his hardboiled and superbly made films. 

Straw Dogs (1971)
A young American mathematician, David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman), and his English wife, Amy (Susan George), move to a Cornish village, seeking the quiet life. But beneath the seemingly peaceful isolation of the pastoral village lies a savagery and violence that threatens to destroy the couple, culminating in a brutal test of Sumner’s manhood and a bloody battle to the death. One of the most controversial films ever made, Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs is a harrowing and masterful investigation of masculinity and the nature of violence.
