One of the most controversial American films of the 1980s, Samuel Fuller’s White Dog (1982) was withheld from release in the States at the time and has rarely been seen since. This head-on examination of racism remains a riveting and startlingly powerful film experience, with superb performances and a brilliant score by the great musical master, Ennio Morricone. To celebrate the film’s Dual Format release this Monday (31 March), we have THREE copies of White Dog to give away, courtesy of Eureka Entertainment and Masters of Cinema. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
When a young actress (Kristy McNichol) adopts a stray white dog she hit with her car, she soon discovers that the creature has been conditioned to attack any black person on sight. Its only chance is Keys (Paul Winfield), an animal trainer focused on breaking the dog’s behaviour and finding a way to eradicate its vicious instincts. An acclaimed and daring late-career highlight for its director, White Dog amply demonstrates Fuller’s clear-eyed intelligence, impassioned humanity and filmmaking dynamism. Unavailable in the UK for decades, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present its premiere in a new Dual Format edition.
