Thank goodness we have the far superior 'PEPPERMINT' (Jennifer Garner, 2018) to save the female revenge genre!
A short summary: Spiked with predictable scenes, boring superficial characters, totally perverse violence portrayals, Coralie Fargeat shows how much she scorns the male population. The violence is in no way aesthetic, as for example in Tarantino staged it as a dance. It's just there to hurt the viewer.
How do I start now? First of all, I think it would be interesting to have the common opinion
that this should be a feminist film refute.
This can be refuted in three points:
1.) We never see the woman explicitly naked the man several times. We see a well-built naked man. Not the woman, but the man becomes a sex object here.
2.) Another point would be the branch of Jennifer pierced. Here is a clear allusion to the male member to watch. The phallus inflicts tremendous pain on her, keeps her from running and gets in her way. In short, the man still oppresses the woman these days.
This is an extremely dangerous ideology represented here because it undermines the achievements of the feminist movement. Mention should be made of the right to vote and women now receive the same income as men, to name but two examples.
3.) The actual movement of feminism has stood up for the social and political equality of women.
Instead, in this concoction, the man is simply denounced. They are irrational, brutal, violent, infantile, impulsive and constantly inferior to their instincts, thus behaving like animals.
And how animals are they then slaughtered.
In addition, the characters are not very credible. Now, one or the other may say that this is just fiction. This is true so far, a film does not have to correspond to reality. He must, however, be plausible and that's exactly what "Revenge" is missing.
In other words we only look but do not see.
Honestly the worst thing I have ever seen. What a complete waste of time.
And the camera just could NOT pan away from the girl's BUTTOCKS !!!
