Movie Info

When feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye sets out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men's Rights Movement, she begins to question her own beliefs. Jaye had only heard about the Men's Rights Movement as being a misogynist hate-group aiming to turn back the clock on women's rights, but when she spends a year filming the leaders and followers within the movement, she learns the various ways men are disadvantaged and discriminated against. The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege.

Critic Reviews for The Red Pill

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (5)

  • It demonstrates enough sincerity and openness to challenging ideas - letting representatives of this problematic movement make their case clearly and convincingly - that one wishes it were able to look at multiple sides of this debate at the same time.

  • The Red Pill (the title is a reference to The Matrix) only exacerbates [the] divide with its uncritical, lopsided presentation and inability to craft a compelling argument regarding a topic this controversial.

  • There's no doubt that men do sometimes do suffer mistreatment from the courts or from the women in their lives. What the film and the movement fail to demonstrate is any kind of systemic cause.

  • Unbalanced docu about men's rights movement.

  • A wretched, morally bankrupt documentary.

    Jun 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Cassie Jaye's men, and by association the filmmaker herself, are not serving a greater good or inspiring discourse, but instead fuelling a social divide and dishonouring their respective genders.
