The Power of the Dog

The Power of the Dog Pictures - Rotten Tomatoes

The Power of the Dog, Jane Campion’s Montana-set drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a threatening rancher, is a superb film.  Campion has now won the Oscar for best director at the 94th Academy Awards.  She becomes the third woman to win the award, after Chloé Zhao in 2021 and Kathryn Bigelow in 2010.

Campion last won an Oscar in 1994 for The Piano, which began its journey in Cannes, where it won the Palme d’Or.

‘I’ll think of something to do with the prize money’ … Gurnah.

The win is a landmark. Gurnah is only the fourth black person to win the prize in its 120-year history. “He is one of the greatest living African writers » his agent says.

Gurnah grew up on Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania, in the 1950s and 60s. During the revolution there, he and his brother escaped to Britain. Gurnah lived for 17 years in Britain before setting foot in Zanzibar again. In the meantime he had blossomed into a writer. Several of his novels deal with leaving, dislocation and exile.
