News & Interviews for M.F.A.
Critic Reviews for M.F.A.
Noelle is a millennial Dirty Harry, tackling the social problems that face this generation in a story that's outsized in nature but metaphorically pierces right at the heart of the matter.
Less a pulse-pounding thriller than a conversation starter about injustice and vigilantism.
"M.F.A.'s" themes call for a careful, consistent tone that it is rarely able to maintain, and an increasingly ridiculous third act squanders much of the empathy and engagement that Leite works so hard to build in the early going.
...as an angry as hell piece of pulpy and politicised pop cinema, it's the business.
Bravely tackling the dark side of empowerment, it has a very sure sense of what it wants to say, refuses to reduce its topic to easy tropes.
Audience Reviews for M.F.A.
M.F.A. is a provocative and disturbing thriller. After being date raped, Noelle (an art school student) turns vigilante; seeking revenge against her attacker and looking into other rape cases on campus that have been ignored or covered up. The film addresses some controversial and topical issues about college campuses and rape; such as trying the victim and prevention verses punishment. It also questions whether violence really solves anything and the morality of vigilante justice. And Francesca Eastwood gives an especially strong performance. It's kind of a formulaic revenge thriller, but M.F.A. has an interesting message...beyond the stereotypical "dig two graves."
I assume the tile acronym is the shorthand for Master of Fine Arts, but I really hope it stands for Men's Frights Activist.
