I watched this movie after reading the book that came out over the summer that talked about the making of the movie and what a groundbreaking movie it was. Two female stars, an unknown female screenwriter, a quirky film director, and characters that depicted woman and men in a different non-conventional way. This film does not generate neutrality. Viewers are either horrified by the violence depicted in the film or screaming for a finally realistic portrayal of the lives woman lead in this country that’s less than the dutiful wife.
Although Director Ridley Scott may go a little overboard (exploding truck anyone)? I can honestly say that I have never seen a movie quite like it in both style and substance and Hollywood has largely opted not to repeat the success of this type of story. Opting instead for Superhero franchises, and [insert name of franchise part 57]. It is both breathtaking in terms of story and cinematography that the film stays in your head for hours, days, and weeks after you’ve watched it.
