    this is a tough one, because the gender politics and social norms of the time feel even more ancient than they actually are. if you can get around that, and accept this film seems to be a first major step in pushing back against those regressive norms, then it's easier to connect with what the film is trying to say.

    maybe not a great film overall, but it's definitely ahead of its peers as far as character placement, camera movement, etc.
