Belladonna of Sadness

Belladonna of Sadness ★★

You are more beautiful than God himself. 

Animation? Gorgeous. Soundtrack? Bopping. Anything else about this? No thanks. 

I’m sorry but 
1.) a scene where a character is immediately post getting raped by like 50 people and is STILL drawn in the most sexualized way ever is nasty. 
2.) how many times do I have to say that stories about women who get hurt a lot aren’t inherently feminist because they show women in pain. That’s just, women in pain. 
3.) a lot of this feels like really scary porn

Anyways, I don’t think it’s a feminist film, as far as that debate goes, and it’s definitely not my thing. Which sucks, because I was really looking forward to this for a long time (though I had no idea what it was about).
