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.

Oh my goodness me. My first encounter with this was when a college friend lent me a pirate copy with a black and white photocopy of the video cover. Many people have their stories of when the first saw Clockwork Orange when Kubrick was still alive (including me) but watching 'Straw Dogs' had a stronger affect on my being than a film about bowler hatted ultraviolent rapists. Out of all the Peckinpah films I have watched ('Wild Bunch', 'Pat Garrett' and 'Alfredo Garcia')this is the best one.

If truth be known there is only one visceral film and that is 'Straw Dogs'.
