Loves ruining your favourite film.
I wrote an essay for a history exam on the original poster for this film in college having never seen it. It was a great essay, then I finally watched the movie and realised there was little more to it than what I wrote based solely on its reputation.
It is definitely more of an iconic film than a good one. The soundtrack (one of the first to be cross marketed with a film that wasn’t a musical) is banging,…
Look it’s got a weaker third act but here are a list of things I loved in this film:
The opening chase
The murky title sequence replete with Smells Like Teen Spirit cover
ScarJo actually getting to breathe with the character
The dark joke about hysterectomies
The prison scene
More brutal and up close fights
The villains (small screen time, big presence)
Did I mention Florence Pugh?
