As a movie this is just the sentimental uplifting Hollywood Oscar bait you would expect, but the story of three hella smart women is inspiring and the three women, Henson, Spencer and Monae are great!
This is the mother of dark and twisted films. It just keeps escalating into darkness until you are gaping in awe. It's disturbing as hell the best part of the movies are the small transgressions, the looks, eye rolls, the biting sarcastic one liners, the mundane representation of death. It is one of the most perfect pitch black comedies I've ever seen. Its devotion to being totally devoid of sentimentality and moral is a pleasure. Huppert is breathtaking and her Elle might be the most fascinating female characther I've seen in a very long time!
