Many viewers were expecting to see a typical Western when "The Power of the Dog," directed by Jane Campion, hit theaters this fall. "The Power of the Dog" is the story of two brothers, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George (Jesse Pelmons), the former being violent and grumpy and the latter formal and shy. The two are trying to run a farm in Montana and do not get along well with each other. After these two, we have other characters such as George's new and emotional wife, Rose (Kristen Dunst), and his reclusive and conservative son Peter (Cody Smith McFae). As strangers, Rose and Peter are unfamiliar with the hardships of farming life and gradually show weakness, and even the elephant mocks his brother's new family.

In the end, Peter becomes the elephant's greatest threat, questioning his masculinity and wisdom.

"Dog Power" is first and foremost a film about masculinity, the price of belonging and being a stranger. Those who enjoy this surprising Western and concept film can check out and watch seven similar films on this list.

Adapted by Elia Kazan The story of Cain and Abel by California author John Steinbeck is fascinating. The conflict between Cal (James Dean) and his brother, Aaron (Richard Davallos), in the background of the pre-war situation, is a fraternal and classic rivalry in the form of a complex story. Here, too, like "dog power," we have a strange character. In this film, Cal catches the viewers' attention, and even when confronted with the brutal behavior of his father (Raymond Macy) and the outright rejection of his mother (Joe Van Fleet), he constantly tries to gain their love and affection. Taking advantage of James Dean and his potential as an emerging actor, "East of Paradise" is a fascinating, melodramatic film full of romance, with a character who aspires to a normal life on a farm in California.

Jane's inner rebellion is often at odds with her Calvinist education and the teachings of those around Rochester. However, he is not willing to jeopardize his reputation.
