The Power of the Dog Masculinity Themes Explained

Phil Burbank is a man, and Phil Burbank is a cowboy. As far as he’s concerned, those two words might as well mean the same thing. According to Phil, the malevolent rancher played by Benedict Cumberbatch in The Power of the Dog, to be a man is to work long hours doing manual labor, steering herds, and castrating bulls. Men don’t wear suits. Men don’t wear gloves when working. Men don’t bathe indoors or show affection towards women. Men don’t show affection towards anybody, except for Bronco Henry (Phil’s beloved, deceased mentor in the ways of the cowboy.) Above all else, men are stoic: they completely reject all things emotional, feminine, or soft.
