'Misogynist' might be Fifty Shades of Grey Antidote
Writer/Director Michael Matteo Rossi has caught the attention of many with his first feature film 'Misogynist'. In a current social climate that is seemingly anti white heterosexual male, it takes some guts to try to put out a film about a narcissistic, awful, violent man - which Matteo pulls off brilliantly.
Misogynist is a low budget thriller that focuses on a man (Trevor) who for some reason has a huge chip on his shoulder concerning woman. He believes they want to be controlled, told what to do and even man handled. Trevor (played wonderfully by Jon Briddell) even goes so far as to have created a somewhat secret "Fight Club" where he teaches his rules to young men wanting to know how to get laid.
Trevor befriend's Harrison, a man who recently got dumped by his girlfriend. Trevor promises to teach him his ways of women, and makes Harrison (played by Jonathan Bennett) his protégé.
Throughout the film, we get to learn the top rules on how to make women want a man. Even the most unavailable and beautiful women. What interested me the most about this movie was that it doesn't praise this sort of narcissistic, misogynistic main character's behavior. It's actually a cautionary tale, and shines a light on a social issue that has been a part of culture's since the beginning of time.
Alia Raelynn, Danielle Lozeau and Kris Black offer strong supporting roles and throughout the film there is great chemistry between all of the actors. If I had one issue with the film, it was the sound on certain scenes. A couple times the main character was speaking/whispering while his back was turned, and I had to strain to hear what was being said. I personally watch captions on every film I can, and hope to see this again with a caption option (or maybe I'll crank up the headphones or surround system).
All in all I recommend Misogynist because it is a solid first effort and tackles a subject the way Fifty Shades of Grey failed to. I really liked the ending of this film, it tied all the loose strings together. I can't wait to see what Michael Matteo Rossi does next.
