    Promising Young Woman

    ½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Gets worse the more you think about it. You can't show how the system had and will fail women again and again, then have your protagonist die a violent, sacrificial death and expect that same system to get justice for her. It doesn't work like that! Is Emerald Fennel commentating on the bleak nature of being a woman? From what I've seen of her writing, I doubt she's doing it intentionally.

    Rooney Mara sewing up Daniel Craig's forehead gunshot wound with dental floss is something that can actually be so personal.

    This movie has no idea what it's trying to say. It starts out with a well-intended message only to undo it with baffling plot twists. Not to mention how exploitative it is!

    Her Smell

    I never walked out of a movie before but Her Smell almost did it for me. Every scene is 15 minutes too long and the dialogue is obnoxious. Becky's self destruction is very hammered in. After an hour of that it's like okay! We get it! The rest of her arc isn't much better. None of it feels earned. She is supposedly redeemed by her love for her daughter yet we barely see the two interact. I don't even have good things to say about the acting because it's too obvious and easy.
