Over the years, Netflix has earned five Best Picture nods (‘Roma’, ‘The Irishman’, ‘Marriage Story’, ‘Mank’, and ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’) but they might finally win with this masterpiece from Jane Campion. The quintessential slow-burn Western, ‘Dog’ is an absolute thing of unsettling beauty, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a bullying scoundrel who terrorizes his brother’s family in 1920s Montana. It’s subtle and creepy and unnerving and all-out fantastic.

5/5 stars
