STRAW DOGS (1971) ULTIMATE 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION (2 DISCS)

£8.50

STRAW DOGS

 

SLEEVE NOTES:

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Sam Peckinpah's controversial 'Straw Dogs', the film has been fully restored to create the definitive version of one of the most intensely powerful and menacing portrayals of violence to appear on the big screen.

Released in 1971 and banned from home viewing under the 1984 Video Recordings Act, his disturbing masterpiece can now be seen in its 'uncut' form as he intended.

David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman) is a quiet American mathematician who has moved with his wife Amy (Susan George) back to a remote Cornish farmhouse near the village where she grew up. The couple have relocated to rural England in an attempt to flee the violence of America but their placid life is brutally interrupted when the savagery and violence they sought to escape engulfs them and threatens to destroy their lives.
