The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden

Straight men aren't allowed to make movies about queer women anymore since they don't know how to do it without adding extended and exploitative porn to the middle. The end.

(I'll probably add a real review eventually and up the star rating slightly but right now I'm still too angry.)

I wonder how I would have felt if I wasn't a fan of the book, if the twists would have been enough to cause me to overlook the problems or if I would be less angry if I didn't know that this was missing the entire point. I haven't been this annoyed by a film since Blue is the Warmest Color.
