Straw Dogs Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Based on Gordon M. Williams's novel The Siege Of Trencher's Farm and starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George Straw Dogs is an unflinching and uncompromising study of primal barbaric brutality that is generally regarded as one of the strongest statements about violence ever put on screen. Quiet American mathematician David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman) and his British-born wife Amy (Susan George) relocate to Amy's rural English hometown in an attempt to flee the violent social unrest brewing in the US. When David hires some locals including a former boyfriend of Amy's to repair his barn the couple find themselves being subtly harassed and bullied by the workmen. The more the pacifist David ignores the problem the more the harassment intensifies leading to terrifying consequences as he ultimately finds himself forced to defend his home and his life discovering a frighteningly vicious side to himself as events escalate towards a bloody climax. Boasting outstanding performances from the two leads a brilliant support cast and Jerry Fielding's superb Oscar-nominated score Straw Dogs in the thirty-one years since its original release has lost none of its intense visceral power to thrill and shock in equal measure.

Sam Peckinpah's controversial tale of a pacifist pushed to the limit has been widely criticized for its explicit depictions of violence and was banned in the UK from 1984 through to 2002. David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman) is an American mathematician who comes to live in a Cornish farmhouse with his wife Amy (Susan George). The locals don't take kindly to the young couple's presence, and begin a bullying campaign against them; when this escalates to rape and a direct assault upon the farmhouse, the ordinarily timid and slow-to-anger David begins to fight back.
