Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman

an amazingly bad film. it draws a lot from previous successors (american mary, precisely, as well as one of the posters resembles barbara creed's book - the monstrous feminine) but just done completely wrong. 'rape revenge' but it actually takes power away from the victim... there are no victory moments for anyone. emerald fennell is a hack who also presents herself as completely insensitive and tone deaf. marketed as a potential slasher rape revenge flick, with no delivery...no catharsis! the wool has been pulled over my eyes ... i truly can't with this film.
