Well, of course I recognize its attempt to poke fun at totalitarianism, if that's what you are talking about. But I really like that theme, and it felt so trite and weak from the beginning that I kind of tuned out and ignored it completely and focused on its musings on gender, which were so unexpectedly familiar. There's a ton more political bite in some minor Svankmajer shorts from the 60s like Zahrada (1968) than here, and I've got the same vibe of a populist cash-in and half-assed satire from Machulski's Kingsajz (1988). I guess it's either me being a sourpuss or Machulski being a hack, and I'm fine either way. ;)monty on May 6 2014, 05:23:38 PM wrote:Sexmission is a great comedy, you bobbybrown are a sourpuss. I really fail to fathom how it's possible to misconstrue a film to such a degree as you do here. It's not about misogyny, it's a political satire in sci-fi guise.
And hey, misconstruing is so much more fun than seeing Jerzy Stuhr hamming it up in a bland rehash of Sleeper (1973)!
