A liberating journey.
1 March 2017 | by Victor_FallonSee all my reviews

This is serious work and joyful to watch. Despite the prickly subject, there is a strong current of hope running throughout thanks to our remarkably likable narrator and her willingness to entertain new ideas.

Functionally, it's a superb introduction to MRA issues and an important cultural snapshot. It's also very well directed and credit must go to Cassie Jay for her excellent pacing, structural editing and measured tone.

This is not a bombastic, meme-riddled, sarcastic or facetious propaganda piece that simply attacks feminism, the kind that plagues online discussions. It is mercifully straightforward. I particularly liked the shots of Cassie simply listening to her interviewees and quietly thinking on camera. It communicated a lot.

Her cast is first-rate, with voices from many decades ago and some key cultural voices of today. There's a good mix of the righteous, the infuriating and the informative.

As others are saying, it's a must-see.

Tolerant, thoughtful, powerful and, dare I say, chivalrous. Cassie even has the balls to reach a conclusion (pun intended) and her emotional journey will be one familiar to those who have taken the red pill themselves. Brave stuff.

I can't wait to see her next documentary!
