    Sweet Smell of Success

    How did it get so dark?

    The streets are covered in rain and the lamppost gives just a tingle of light in the black of night. Enough light to give the poor prey a pinch of hope. Hiding in their sleazy caves, the nocturnal creatures of the night torment those a step down in the food chain, and they torment downward until it all becomes a lineage of loathing.

    One of these venal beasts is the press agent Sidney Falco…

    ★★★½

    I may be underestimating the mental capacity for critical thinking of the past, but I can only imagine the effect a “documentary” like Häxan would have had on cinema-goers from literally a century ago.

    Sorry for being facetious, but I'd really much rather watch Lady Bird, Booksmart, Little Women or Girlhood. Maybe even Mean Girls and Clueless - even though they may be a bit dated. They actually manage to show the complexities of feminism rather than seeing the world through the rose-tinted glasses of ideology.
