  • As another black girl, I think when you see more political narratives than there truly are in the film, it ends up distorting your perception of it. Lemme try to explain shortly: An early point of yours is that Marla represents capitalism & the kind of femininity that copies masculinity in a bad way- mainly bc she's greedy, a liar, but smart and cunning too. The thing is, those are *personality* traits, not hallmarks of economic systems. You can believe in socialism or communism and lie/like to cheat. In every system, there will be people who know how to exploit it using its flaws: those people are liars & cheaters. By saying Marla's character is like that bc it tries to copy men, is doing what you hate- making everything revolve around men. She doesn't speak on behalf of anyone (since she's selfish) nor is she a caricature, she's just an evil person. That's why she parallels Roman. They're both evil, selfish people. Race is irrelevant. Now, I searched the whole plot before commenting this & she really is a protagonist you're meant to hate. But in a good way bc she's well-written and interesting. I always wanted to see more female con artists in films even if that's wrong, bc it's rarely done. But yeah, this is how I see the film.. thank you for your time.

  • From what I’ve seen, people who didn’t like it criticize it as a “female empowerment” movie, rather than a showcase of the different types of villains that surface as a result of capitalism. Those villains include Marla, Fran, their friends up on the same level as Roman (ya know, the dude who traffics women as drug mules?). Instead, it seems that all the criticism is *concentrated* on Marla, and yes rightfully so! Because she exploited the elderly! But it makes me wonder, why is it that the criticism is solely on Marla? Is it because she’s misinterpreted as a “girl boss?” Why then, is it that Roman isn’t under the same amount of criticism? Who not only made money illegally, but through means of *physically* exploiting women, not just through their finances like Marla did with her wards. (And hey maybe it’s because he’s not in the same spotlight as Marla, I’m just spitballing here.) I think it’s such a good (not the best) take because what I interpreted from it is that what white feminism does is only address the gendered politics of society, ignoring and dismissing any other aspects (i.e. in the first scene when Marla tried to say that the man with the hat was infuriated at her because he lost to “someone with a vagina” instead of the fact that, ya know, she exploited his mother. I’m in no means justifying the things said to her that she should be murdered/r*ped). Marla (idk if intentionally) takes the argument towards her role in the situation as a woman being berated instead of taking responsibility for her role as a criminal exploiting elders through the capitalist system that forgives her for being white. AND what I think is so brilliant is that this social commentary circles back because the criticism I’ve seen of this movie is exactly that! “This movie is so unrealistic how could she have survived the russian mafia” “this is why I don’t like feminists” which 1) she survived because she played with the bargaining chip she had which were her skills pertaining to a common interest with Roman: money. 2) Have you seen John Wick and pretty much any other action movie?? How many scenes are there where the bad guys have machine guns and STILL miraculously do not kill the main character. 3)Thinking this is a feminist movie *reinforces* the tool of white feminism in which it actually fails to address other issues that intersect under the plight of a capitalism. idk, i liked it, it wasn’t the best movie, but i still liked it. I do think that her getting caught would have been a more ironic end because then she’d be rotting in the same institution where she tried to exploit others.

  • Her character kinda reminds me of the way people viewed Daisy in Great Gatsby so many people at school were like dont like the book cause I dont like any of the characters, especially Daisy and I was always like good cause fuck me they're horrible rich cunts, that's the POINT. Likeable, nice. character is not needed for a good end product, if your book movie etc is about horrible people and your characters are easily likeable then there maybe an error in your writing friend.

  • The thing about her being a lesbian is that it’s a theme in movies about evil women that men write. There’s this trope that like “only a woman who has no interest in getting male attention would be so cruel” or like “she hates men [because straight dudes think that’s what being gay is] so that’s why she’s so mean to these poor men.” It’s just really frustrating when men write a an evil (or sometimes not even evil, just self assured) female character and then also make her gay.

On every single one if your videos I have to turn the volume up and don’t. All through the video. I finally gave up cause it’s in every single video!!! Watch Michael jackson singing live holding mic.

  • My immediate thoughts: As a WLW, women in relationships are one of the patriarchs number one fear, because it takes away an essential element of control. (It also takes away the need for men in womens personal lives) It's a generalisation that women are feminists because they "hate men" and so the main character being in a same sex relationship seems to me like the director wants to portray that she is indeed a caricature of feminism, and I see that representation could be argued as a reason, but if it was representation they were after, the people she conned would not have been rich white old people (IMO)

  • You really verbalized why this movie was so compelling, at least to me. It's just all awful people. Everyone in the movie, and what they represent, awful. And they're all trying to out-awful each other. And they're all awful in many of the ways our society is awful, and like with our society, all most of us can do is just sit by and watch unmovable object/unstoppable force of greedy, self serving, unempathetic people fucking over each other and everyone else in the process. And it's, again, very compelling to watch the trainwreck. Thought it was a bit heavy handed at times, but I think they were really just trying to hammer down that it's satire. Anyway, yeah, I couldn't verbalize that before. When I thought about why I liked the movie I was previously just like "She's just such an irredeemable monster. Just the fucking worst. I love it" which I guess is not a compelling argument and does require expanding upon, lol.

  • One thing I found interesting and important in the movie is the use of a black, male judge that naively backed the main character. Marla simply flashed a smile in his courtroom and he granted her everything she asked for without fact checking any of her or the other sides claims. I think this was a play on the black man white woman relationship in our society. The fact that black men typically see white women as innocent and trustworthy as well as the idea that white women can easily manipulate black men with nothing more than a soft voice and pretty face.

  • I didn't care much about the lead character. She's a twisted person, so she does bad stuff without remorse. What I did care about, and what really made me dislike this movie, is the storyline about the useless mafia guy. I don't like the mafia but, the real mafia would be more deadly and capable than what the movie portrays. So to me, the whole plot is extremely unrealistic. Plus, they try to make her a genius by making her opponent stupid. They could've made her a real genius. Now, there's a woman who took advantage of elderly people just like the main character did. The movie wasn't pointless. If the plot weren't so poorly done, it would have been a good, thought-provoking movie.

  • As a Latine non-binary lesbian I can say that her being a lesbian was a good choice. There’re so many cis white lesbians who use the fact they’re gay to assume they can’t be oppressive. Cis white gays/lesbians are only one step away from being their straight counterparts and as yt supremacy has evolved, it has included them. ❤️

  • I think another important thing to consider is: what makes a character engaging isn’t how likable they are. It’s how *motivated* they are. Marla is a TERRIBLE person, honestly everyone in the movie is. But she is incredibly motivated (again, almost everyone in the movie is). This is what keeps the audience invested. Because at the end of the day, there’s a very fine line between the audience rooting for the character and the audience just really wanting to know what they will do next - or even rooting for them to fail. Because regardless, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes the story satisfying.

    • You just helped me understand what about this character I enjoyed. I felt guilty enjoying after watching the movie because I was almost cheering her on at some points of the movies (in moments where I forgot that she’s inserting herself into and actually taking away elderly people’s lives). Then, I realize I was conflating liking a certain quality she has (determination) with actually liking her as a character. I love how much Pike’s character was willing to get what she wanted - but overall, her actions were wrong and a reminder of a depressing reality for some neglected people in our society.

  • Something I find particularly interesting about this movie from an analytical perspective (particularly an academic historical one). Is that Roman and Marla’s names are the very embodiment of historical icons of masculinity and feminity in white western society. The Romans have been heralded as examples of strong violent masculine “heroes” for centuries, while Marla comes from Mary Magdalene one of the sides of feminine duality used in historical iconography (though I think Marla herself embodies the idealic feminity of both Mary Magdalene and Mary the virgin, as she embodies both a demure kindness and a sinner). The crossover of white feminism into white patriarchy that you mentioned could even be seen as the same crossover from the Romans being enemies of both Marys, to an eventual western world where these forces both became gendered norms of the same white (evangelical) American society, or how Christianity and the Roman Empire itself eventually United and were weaponized against non white christians. Just as Marla and Roman go from enemies to allies.

Yet I still like her because the narrative is aware of what it intends to do with her character, and female writers have adequately handled her to make this nuanced portrayal (+jodie comer is TERRIFIC) whereas in the book off which the show was based, (written by a straight man) she was a hypersexualised horndog with no humour, whose bisexuality was just another ~ quirk ~ about her.

  • I agree with what you said about Marla being unlikeable, I hated her from the moment I saw her and although I agree with most of what you said I still think this movie was awful. There was so much stupidity and it was so boring that the only reason I finished it was to get the satisfaction of that final scene and man did I enjoy it. I compare this to uncut gems another movie about a horrible person you hate every second of screen time they get, but regardless of him being stupid doing all of those horrible things I wasn't bored while watching it.

  • As a lesbian, I appreciate media that isn't afraid to portray gay people as villains. The whole idea of normalising lgbt characters involves allowing the creative freedom to write us in a variety of different ways. Not all lgbt people are hereos, or good guys, in the same way not all of us are villains. As long as it isn't written like the character's gayness is the reason or root of their evil, I don't mind at all. As I say, I actually appreciate it. It provides a variety of characters of different types who just happen to also be lgbt and allows us to be represented on screen, through the written word, on stage etc. Being gay or lgbt doesn't make you evil, nor does it make you good, in the exact same way heterosexuality doesn't determine whether you're good or evil (I suppose unless you're homophobic? Idk). That's just my two cents on the topic as a lesbian with too many opinions 😂

  • I honestly didn't think about white feminism being portrayed in this film. I was more so thinking of conservatorships because of the Framing Britney Spears doc that I watched a few days before this came out. The wealthy elderly lady is getting put through this "conservatorship" type of thing, even though she is of sound body and mind. I felt like it was discussing the horrible things about conservatorships and ideas like that, that can hurt instead of help those that it's supposed to be "helping". I also liked the fact that she is a wlw (I don't know if she's a lesbian bc I don't remember it being discussed in the film. It might've been discussed outside of it by the cast or director, but I haven't watched those) and she's in this relationship with a woman who is just as equally bad as Marla tbh, because she knows what Marla's doing and even takes part in it as well. When she decides to help Marla with kidnapping Roman and sticking with her in the growing empire, to me, it showed that she's just as greedy as Marla is, she just doesn't show it up front. Or she's a true "ride or die" kind of person.

  • About Showgirls: Paul Verhoeven is a Dutch director and the Dutch are known to be pretty down to earth. We even have saying that goes: Act normal, because that's already crazy enough. When Verhoeven came to the U.S. and Hollywood and he saw the excess that ya'll indulge in he Madeleine showgirls. It's basically a satire of Hollywood, but he decided to have the movie set in Las Vegas because that place is even more extravagant. So he's kinda just mocking the U.S. Not saying it's a good movie because of that but that is basically what he was satirical about.

I think I was just expecting a thriller or action comedy. I knew we weren’t supposed to be rooting for any of the characters while watching the movie, but with an uninteresting conflict, I was just bored. I think that if you have no likeable characters you need an interesting conflict where they tear each other apart but, again, I wasn’t looking at it as commentary. I also feel like Marla could have been worse 😬 She sucked and I didn’t like her but I don’t know I didn’t hate her for some reason. She was just kind of there and I didn’t care?

I have never wanted to see a character die more than I hoped for Marla's death. I felt genuine anger watching this because this stuff actually happens and it's so messed up that I wanted to give it a thumbs down for those reasons alone. I don't think I've ever been so upset watching a film but it was a pretty good screen write.

It may be that her being a female and her opponents male is an important aspect, but I don't see it as the point of criticism in the film. To me the producers may have wanted to "criticise" greed in capitalism. Nothing more.

The stark contrast between Marla and Ramond make Raymond looks nice - he is the only main character that we spend time with who shows relatable feeling, and it’s this specific choice that doesn’t make it a good movie for me.
