The Power of the Dog, primarily based on Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel of the similar identify, leads the 2022 Academy Awards with a complete of 12 nominations. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as a rancher who’s additionally a closeted homosexual man.
The critics are clearly followers of the movie, however longtime Western movie star Sam Elliott hates it deeply.
“You want to talk about that piece of shit?” Elliott stated his podcast with Marc Maron.
“I looked at when I was down there in Texas doing 1883 and what really brought it home to me the other day when I said, ‘Do you want to fucking talk about it?’ There was a fucking full-page ad out in the LA Times and there was a review, not a review, but a clip, and it talked about the ‘evisceration of the American myth.’ And I thought, ‘What the fuck? What the fuck?’ This is the guy that’s done Westerns forever. The evisceration of the American west?”
Elliott says Cumberbatch and the different cowboys in the movie remind him of Chippendales dancers.
“They made it seem like — what are all these dancers that these guys in New York who put on bowties and not a lot else?
“That’s what all these fucking cowboys in that movie look like,” Elliott stated. “They’re all running around in chaps and no shirts. There’s all these allusions to homosexuality throughout the fucking movie.”
And with that, Sam Elliott’s days in Hollywood are doubtless numbered. Before releasing his ideas on this movie, which could get him banned from future movies, he just lately bowed out of the SAG awards over its vaccine mandate.
Elliott is just not vaccinated in opposition to COVID and says he won’t ever get vaccinated.
The Left hates Elliott as a lot as he hates The Power of the Dog.
