Compelling, just for the fact that for the first 30 minutes of the film
the audience is left wondering what this spectacular form of therapy is
that can free a rape victim. When you realise that it involves cutting
dicks off things dip a little. Surely the therapy should be a little
I appreciated the concept that to truly become empowered you have to focus on the enemy in general and not the specific offender, which obviously is pretty hard to do. Satisfyingly our protagonist cannot resist and one of the best parts of that is punishing the 'nice guy' who did rape her, but he really didn't want to. Aw bless thinks Julia as she aborts his eyeballs coaxingly telling him "This way I know you will never stand by and watch." I almost expected a high pitched cackle to follow.
I really enjoyed this film as it went full arc. Julia did drink some vodka, hate f**k and castrate some guys, become a lesbian and torture her offenders but it offered something different to the old plot less wonders that so often cross this genre's path. It had a structure, it had a concept which may have seen better days but the therapy idea was good, it just should have been better and original.
The villain at the end was disappointing but I was glad we saw him and that Julia and her aptly named lesbian lover 'Sadie', tag teamed him to the death. Right before Julia realised Sadie had betrayed her and she killed that bitch too, I like it, no riding off into the hoo ha coloured sunset.
Let's just say there have been better but there really have been worse and if someone with an original idea had managed to catch this before it went into production we may have a better film on our hands. As it was, shot - well, music - great, structure - present. Yeah, why not?
A neo-noir revenge thriller centering on Julia Shames, who after suffering a brutal trauma, falls prey to an unorthodox form of therapy to restore herself.
