Actor Sam Elliott Rips Gay Themes in ‘Power of the Dog’, Calls it a ‘Piece of Shit’

Sam Elliott really hated Jane Campion’s Western drama The Power of the DogThe film, which leads the 2022 Academy Awards with a total of 12 nominations, is based on Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel of the same name and was mostly shot across rural Otago, New Zealand. Elliott, best known for starring in Westerns throughout his career, largely took issue with the absence of the American west in Campion’s film, as well as with the “allusions of homosexuality.”

First of all, Sam Elliott is 77yo and can say what the fuck he wants to say. Secondly, every TV show or movie (outside of a documentary) made in 2020 and beyond almost has to have some sort of gay character, gay storyline or gay theme in it and anyone who tells you different is lying to you. Lastly, ‘Road House’ is one of the greatest action movies ever and Sam Elliott was in it, so there.
