A Feminist Masterpiece...
16 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

... meaning that, in the view of modern society and even more modern (sic) feminists, women can be as vile, depraved and evil as any male serial killer around and that those qualities are seem as pluses in modern women.

Well, of course, this disgusting example of torture porn and aberrant behavior was lauded by the critics as a great film, because, as we all know, critics, have a preference for films depicting humans in their worst, killing each other, lying, destroying lives whatever. In other words, critics love human garbage.

To be perfect, in the view of those so called critics, a film like LM was missing something more avant-garde such as showing LM having sex with a horse, practicing cannibalism (she kills a child), acts of incest, etc.

This is a revolting example of what the so-called modern intellectuals appreciate. Only those sick of mind can appreciate LM.
