    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie introduces a dog and makes multiple obvious hints throughout that it's going to be killed, only for it to survive the whole grim ordeal. The killer doesn't even try and kill it, not even when it's attacking him; he mostly ignores the dog while butchering its owners and even lets it leave with him, which ultimately leads to his capture by police. There's a lot to praise about this movie's overwhelming cinematic style and the way in which it explores its protagonist's mindset with such creepy intimacy, but I have to be honest: this movie is mainly a masterpiece because of the dog.

    Roger Ebert once said that no good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough, but he failed to account for movies like this, which are both too long and too short.

    ★★★

    A terrifying, blood-curdling story about a working-class woman who is abused, tortured, starved and neglected by a monstrous misogynist psychopath who is so pathologically obsessed with a skewed elitist idea of the purity of the English language that he's willing to completely wreck people's lives over it. She eventually finds her entire being controlled and dominated by him, so much so that even when she finally tries to escape she can't go back to the way she was... and might not even have been able to leave him at all. "Where the devil are my slippers" indeed.

    A STATEMENT (05/09/2019): A few days ago this review got liked by some fash edgelord, which has prompted me to finally say something that I should have said a while ago: I don't like this review, I think the jokes suck, I think my serious points about the movie mostly suck, I hate that it's my most liked work on this site (and the most liked Shoah review on the site! wtf), and it makes me sick to my stomach…
