It’s time to get dressed, go down to the lobby, meet the unit publicist and start the Straw Dogs experience. A visit to the set, interviews (of course), probably some nervous tension-lesseners (jokes and whatnot) about the violence and rape elements in the original book and the film, a discussion of the legacy and influence of Sam Peckinpah, and the difference in the social mores between now and 1971. The big rape scene was filmed two days ago, I’m told. The film has two more weeks to shoot.
