Though the film makes a valiant effort to subvert a sexist formula by shrouding itself in French art film trappings and pseudo-empowering femininity, it ultimately falls prey to its exploitative roots.
Purportedly a feminist film because its rape victim is a superhuman survivor who fights back...Coralie Fargeat's "Revenge" is a stylishly shot exploitation movie whose heroine is defined by the amount of butt cheek peeking out of her short shorts.
The only real surprise is the sheer volume of gore: If gouged eyeballs, exploded heads, impaled torsos, and beautiful naked people flailing through pools of vital fluids are what you crave, you will be a fan, and I won't judge you.
Finding beauty in brutality, Revenge takes risks, and not only in its grotesque subject matter. The film has unmatched aesthetic ambitions, as waves of vibrant, hyper-stylized sounds and colors elevate the relentless bloodbath.
