If off-kilter pornographic social commentary is your bag then it's certainly worth a watch despite its problematic elements.

The Misandrists walks dangerously close to 'respectability' at times - [Bruce's] aesthetic has cleaner lines, crisper framing, story structure that veers uncharacteristically towards (dare I say it) conventional.
July 13, 2018
The blend of comedy, horror and social statement, while sometimes exciting, is too often a muddy mix.

The film has countless opportunities to go wrong... but it mostly works.
July 11, 2018
For LaBruce fans and fearless curiosity seekers only.

LaBruce cuts through the pretense of recent mainstream-movie sexuality.

At times, it seems like a parody of itself but manages to beguile while it sermonizes.

I wonder if every viewer will understand that the film's unique tone is offered in the spirit of affection, rather than contempt, for radical feminism.
June 21, 2018
It's bold, transgressive and at times very funny, but doesn't pull everything together in the end.

...featuring intentionally cardboard characterizations and wooden acting along side highly charged sexual images, the script is replete with references to political theory that move so quickly from the lips of the actors that I couldn't keep up.

If John Waters and Karl Marx co-directed a remake of The Beguiled, the resulting feature would be very much like Bruce LaBruce's The Misandrists.
June 5, 2018
As I've argued elsewhere recently, the film landscape feels very polite right now and maybe a blast of straight-no-chaser LaBruce is the antidote we need.

"The Misandrists" is a lesbian hand grenade. It's a raucous clenched fist of queer feminist outrage thrown in the face of anyone who dares to give the patriarchy even the smallest bit of wiggle room.

In its gleeful distaste for conformity, it's a paragon of modern punk-rock moviemaking.
May 25, 2018
An invigorating alternative not just to the unending cascade of banal queer-themed fare--if nothing else, LaBruce's outlandish scenarios activate thought experiments for those pondering a corrective to our present gynophobic kakistocracy.
May 25, 2018
The Misandrists presents an unusual atmosphere, one mainstream cinema can not even conceive of, let alone get on a screen.
May 25, 2018
LaBruce doesn't have a way out of "The Misandrists," but time with these bizarre characters is compelling, and his directorial interests aren't diluted.
May 24, 2018
"The Misandrists" is take-no-prisoners cinema, which makes it cheeky entertainment. The film's early scenes suggest an entirely different film than the one LaBruce ultimately delivers.
May 24, 2018
Tastefully composed and art-directed.

Mr. LaBruce utilizes camp, that unifying language of queer cinema, to undermine the credos of trans-exclusionary radical feminism.
