Straw Dogs and The Human Mind

Straw Dogs and The Human Mind September 15, 2011

Seeing the trailer for the upcoming remake of Straw Dogs made me think about the brilliant original film and about the shockingly violent and brutal lengths that a previously cowardly mathematician goes to to defend his home from invasion against threatening workmen, two of whom have already raped his wife. And whenever I think about that movie it always makes me ask profound questions about the human condition. Like how deranged does someone have to be to watch the scenes above and think, “there’s a kids Christmas movie about an 8 year old boy in this story!”
