Movie Preview: Netflix finances a Jane Campion Western with Cumberbatch as a villain, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons — “The Power of the Dog”

My two cents, this is a much better bang for the buck route for Netflix to travel.

I understand that they won’t have access to a lot of Big Action content as Disney and others point their product to proprietary streaming services. But most Netflix actioners suck.

Their best films have been the awards contending dramas. Go for prestige, limit your expenditures on Big Ticket action pics. If you want Big Action, put it out in series form.

This Jane Campion (“The Piano,” “Bright Star”) adaptation of a Thomas Savage novel comes out Nov. 17 and looks like a contender.
