20th Century Women (2016)

I wish this was a film made before film was even invented. This movie was as fast moving as a stalled-out car. None of the characters had moved forward in their lives and the relationships were really awkward and dumb. I hated the Gerwig & Crudup relationship and don’t even get me started on the main boy’s relationship with Elle Fanning. Talk about being a giant cuckold. The movie isn’t incredibly long, but it felt like it took centuries to go through. I wouldn’t recommend this at all unless you seek frustration.

Mustang (2015)

I’m not much of a car fan but I almost wish this film was about Ford Mustangs. Instead, I get a torturous movie that even though it has a short length for a foreign film, it felt like it went on and on. I wouldn’t consider myself a feminist but this movie treats girls like crap and I felt like crap for being an observer of it. These girls are subjected to being locked in a house, forced marriage to men older than them and basically everything I don’t stand for when it comes to treating a woman right. The movie was shot nicely and it had some interesting scenes, but honestly I just felt like puking afterwards because it just felt so sad, and I hate to know that women get treated this way in the current year. Full disclaimer, I watch movies to be entertained. I know that this movie obviously made me feel something and that should earn it points, but I shouldn’t feel sad and sick afterwards… that’s not why I watch movies.
