Last Night in Soho

Last Night in Soho ★★

What the fuck was this mess? Starts off fun but falls apart when it reaches toward something meaningful and revealing to say about the way men use and abuse women. Devolves into a “damn, bitches be crazy” story that obliterates the good will it engenders. Also, kinda chuckled at the framing of Thomasin Mackenzie’s lead character as quiet, yearning, and picked on by vapid mean girls. (And not a good chuckle, mind you.) Anya Taylor Joy innocent.

It’s a shame…this could have been cute and fun but beyond the thematic issues and messy twists and inability to say anything with heft about the violence enacted on women it isn’t even close to scary or creepy which is a necessity!!!
