Quotes

Ryan: I'm aware of how all this sounds and can well imagine the judgments you're forming, but if I'm really to explain this to you then I have no choice but to be... candid.

Although it's short and "arty," it does make me curious about the book. This movie also reminds me a lot of Norah Vincent's book, Self-Made Man. Men seem to balk at the premise IMMEDIATELY, but if they're courageous (curious?) enough to start reading, they end up really liking it. And they should. It accomplishes what the Men's Movement hasn't done too well: made men's issues real and accessible to men AND women. I think "Hideous Men" takes a good stab at it (and I did like some of the artful ways time and chronology were handled). But I'm POSITIVE having read Vincent's book allowed me to enjoy it more than I might have otherwise.
