Movie: The Hounds of Love

Ugh. What possessed me to go and see this? I hate violent movies.

Actually, I know why I did see it. Because it’s Australian (and I like to support local movies) and I heard that it garnered good reviews.  It IS good and highly authentic in its depiction of controlling, violent relationships. But you’ll never think ‘That nice Stephen Curry’ again, no matter what character he plays.  It’s not unlike Animal Kingdom, especially in its use of music. But I spent a lot of time looking down, especially as the victim looked so much like my stepdaughter. It has really unsettled me.

  1. Totally agree about depictions of violence – they pander to everything that is bad about today’s society.
