Sympathy for the women warriors
4 July 2003 | by (Miami, FL, USA) – See all my reviews

I was surprised when I saw this movie, as it's one of the few essentially sympathetic portrayals of the concept of an Amazon culture I've ever seen committed to visual media. When I noticed who the director was, I was even more delighted (and understood where some of the beautiful shots came from).

For all of its nearly black&white villain-hero dichotomy, it has some interesting concepts behind it, about how a shadow-culture could survive for millennia and why.
