    Fantastic update and reimagining of the 1974 classic! Loved it better than the original by far. I can see how the frank discussion of sexual assault and the characters' experiences of an inflated red-pill patriarchy will be off-putting to a lot of viewers, but I freakin loved it.

    I may be biased tho... I'm a big fan of Sophia Takal's work, and April Wolfe is one of my favorite podcasters around.

    Frat boys, lock up your pledges, 'cause the Lambda sisters are coming for you!

    "You stay the hell out of Minnesota, you goddamn newlywed!"

    Brilliant. I had a near-Safdie level of anxiety though the whole thing, watching Lenny being the most cowardly asshole, and how it affected the people around him—and how little he really cared about that.

    Before watching I read a review of the film that colored my viewing. It quoted Germaine Greer: "Women have very little idea of how much men hate them." Nothing Lila does was really that annoying, certainly…

    Twist, boom tiiiiiiime.

    I was an absolute sucker for the filthy film transfer and the atrocious 1970s absolutely-of-this-time-and-no-other soundtrack, as well as the psychotic lead character and her issues. Is it exploitation cinema? Yep. Was I down? Heck yeah baybee

    This movie is why I hate most people, why I don't go out at night, and why I stay in to just watch movies instead, all wrapped up in one. Majestic.

    That was the single most viscerally unpleasant theater experience I have ever had. The whole second half felt like a frickin heart attack. Well done, Safdies.
