  • A Masterpiece

    Best Film of the year and top-shelf cinema: solidly, A thinking person’s movie. It rivals Fargo and American Psycho when it comes to a near-perfect balance of dark comedy and dramatic atmosphere.
  • Excellent movie, if you are intelligent

    Very good movie, with one of the best performances of the year. It is a movie that stays with you long after it has ended. A necessary indictment of “nice guy” culture that allows predators free rein to destroy countless lives. The end was a punch in the gut......
  • Entertaining even though a little feminist

    A little feminist because every man in the movie under 50 except the cops at the very end were guilty, and so the implication is that all men are guilty. Not all men are like that!! And the movie seems to advocate that a woman’s word alone should be used as evidence, which unfortunately, should obviously never be the case!! But it was entertaining and well done.

    Was totally disappointed. The movie was not as advertised. Boring and mideocre acting. I wasted my $5.99
  • Brilliant take on the Rape-Revenge sub genre

    This movie has a number of turns the viewer won’t see coming. It reminded me of Hitchcock, with the injections of satire. Terrific performance! Disturbing but also funny. Think of it as a dark comedy/psychological thriller and be prepared. No, the movie never shows a rape nor even uses the term.
  • Powerful

    It’s hard not to watch this and see the system that was there for Brock Turner.
  • Unwatchable

    This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time, and I think most women will agree (I’m going to go out on a limb and assume most of the one-star reviews are from men). It’s very hard to watch at times, but superbly acted and a very honest portrayal of dealing with PTSD and the aftermath of sexual assault, with a bit of wry humor and some unexpected twists mixed in. This should be required viewing for everyone, but especially for men. I can’t stop thinking about it 24 hours after watching it.
