Oblique Reference ?
His is a very short take on a very serious subject. The dilution of the subject was done by the name of the clip, not the execution of the plot. "The Consequence of Feminism" is a misnomer. The story is basically - if the gender roles are completely reversed - the men do the household and other menial chores, and sit in Kitty parties, while the women are in Wall-street, Bars, clubs and the controller - including wooing the 'boy'-friend, how would the men in audience would take it. Would they learn something from it ? The ending where the males rebel against oppression - could have as well happened with women against oppression - and hence it is not the 'consequence of feminism" - but a biting take on the 'probable consequence of masculinism" On that aspect it is a very interesting watch. Too short ? May be, but probably making it longer would have blunted the sword. Of course most of the reviewers here don't seem to have got the pinch of it. Incidentally the most intelligent thing about the movie are the genders - had that been reversed, which naturally Director meant, probably this movie would have faced fire due to suuffragacy.
