Aro Favourite Straw Dogs


UK 1971, 118 minutes
Dir. Sam Peckinpah
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Cult, Suspense/Crime / Controversy, Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: With dir. Sam Peckinpah in top form, this powerful study of male territorial instincts pushed out the boundaries of movie violence in the 1970s.

Dustin Hoffman plays a mathematician who is forced into action when his secluded farmhouse comes under siege, and his wife (Susan George) is raped and terrorised. Atmosphere suggests THE WICKER MAN for its erotically-charged yet malign English village setting.
