Critic Reviews for The Beguiled
The Beguiled isn't Coppola's strongest film, but it's her smartest and most skillful in portraying how the dynamics of a group of women can warp and weft under outside pressure, turning from community to competition.
Coppola's The Beguiled doesn't so much negate the festering male paranoia as reclaim the point of view for the women it targets. Then she bats the premise around like a graceful cat with an addled mouse in its paws.
"The Beguiled" has some of the spooky, suggestive magic of a fairy tale.
The strength of her film transcends the soldier's power to seduce. We're beguiled, as an audience, by seeing this male animal as he is seen, and for better and worse experienced, by a diverse and dynamic group of females.
Coppola gets at thorny and complex ideas about how expectations of female gentility poison female sexuality and cause these women to experience desire as sickness.
