The Power of the Dog

Jane Campion's latest, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst, who both gave very good performances. It's a slow build, with an interesting twist and somewhat ambiguous (but suggestive) happy.

Jessy Plemons is one of those character actors who I've come to enjoy, after he followed up in Fargo (with Dunst) following his turn as a psycopthic killer in Breaking Bad.

Yep, he was good in this as well.
