Description

One of the most controversial American films of the 1980s, Samuel Fuller's White Dog was originally withheld from release in the USA and has been rarely 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 Ennio Morricone.

When a young actress (Kristy McNichol) adopts a stray white Alsatian she hit with her car, she soon discovers that the dog 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 (Blu-ray and DVD) edition.

Special Features:

  • Gorgeous 1080p transfer on the Blu-ray, and progressive encode on the DVD
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
  • 48-page booklet featuring an essay on the film by Jonathan Rosenbaum, the words of Samuel Fuller, his "interview" with the dog, and rare archival imagery

an underrated film not given a cinematic release in 1982 because of the films Racial undertones about a dog trained to attack Black people, but then goes into retraining by a black man that ends with a surprising result in a good film that needs to be seen and also based on true events.
