    Subject: Is it good?
    Date: Oct 8, 2003
    Sender: VincentPrevious | Next

    Silly question. Like Virginie Despentes said about her book (there's a book first, which the movie has been based upon), it has been written for the punks, and she is surprised that the book (which is exactly as violent as the movie) has been accepted, where the film created epidermic reactions. Mainly because books belong to the upper classes, where movies are to be seen by everybody.
    So, as for the book or film, it's not a matter of good or bad. No story, it's just the angry shout of two women abused by life. Feminist? probably, and it's not because they kill women too that it's not a feminist movie. They are not angry only towards men, but also the women who accept to be treated 'inferior'.
    Far more honnest than Natural Born Killers, which is manipulative, here there's nothing made for the viewer to excuse the girls' acts. They kill, it's not pretty, nothing romantic, society's violence tainted them, and the result is ugly. Not a good movie but a definitive cornerstone.
