If you balk at the thought of a Paul Verhoeven rape revenge thriller, leave this well enough alone (you’ll probably be able to catch La La Land again, if you leave now). If, though, you’re open to the thought of the Dutch provocateur grabbing hold of the discourse and bending it to his unique whims, you’re in for an incisive, probing, intellectually-nourishing experience.


Photography is truth. The cinema is truth twenty-four times per second. - Jean-Luc Godard
