    ★★★½

    Laura Dern carries this in that she’s able to simultaneously look unknowingly sexy for her age, subtly portray the transformative weight of trauma, and convey how utterly corny and embarrassing it is to be a 15 year old girl. Possibly less overtly sinister than the story, and less ambiguous, but similarly effective in its loss of innocence.

    This mf really has me reflecting on my own consumption of violence.. Terrorism at every level and I guess we’re all complicit.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I actually don’t mind the stylization and could have been down with a bubblegum version of a 70s exploitation r*pe revenge movie... if that was what this is. Instead it’s an hour of setting itself up as something subversive just to hand the reigns back over to the system that it’s criticizing. Carey Mulligan is great and is really acting what she was given, but this movie doesn’t have any idea of what it wants to be.

    You can ball my wife if she wants you to. You can lounge around here on her sofa in her ex-husband's dead-tech, post-modernistic bullshit house if you want to. But you do not! Get to watch! My fucking! Television set!!!
