Most painful movie I've ever had to sit through
I had to sit through two viewings of this in a feminist film class. I've watched many experimental films in my time and this was by far the worst. Intentionally horrible acting, intentionally painful viewing experience... does anyone wonder why the feminist cinema died? Maybe it's because their mantra included removing pleasure from movies.
The whole film is a collage of clips of artists, snobs, and feminists expounding French and feminist philosophy in conversations that are basically two ideologies reciting their lines back and forth. Throw in incoherent dialogue and sound quality, stuff that doesn't make sense, and nothing good, and you have The Man Who Envied Women.
