Trivia

All of The Red Pill's Associate Producer credits were gifted to those people because of their donation to the film's Kickstarter Campaign, which was launched in October 2015 in order to raise post-production funding to complete the film. The Associate Producers did not have any involvement in the film's creation other than donating to the Kickstarter. Additionally, none of the Associate Producers saw the film until after the film's public theatrical release. See more »

Makes you think
12 August 2017 | by benjaminburtSee all my reviews

This film is by no means perfect. It was sort of cheaply made, with some awkward editing, and lack of sound in many parts. I think one could argue that it fails to debunk feminism, but I would suggest that such was never the goal of the documentary.

The Red Pill is so great because it makes its audience think and consider something that isn't so obvious. It's a film that challenges its audience, and brings to light not-so-visible issues. That's the main draw. It is important for both supporters and enemies of the Men's Rights movement, and I think anyone who has an interest in feminism should see this movie, even if they can guarantee that they won't agree with it.

Another complaint I could include is that the documentary fails to talk about the internet culture of Men's Rights, where most are anonymous, embittered, and often misogynistic men.

Despite its problems, I would endorse the film and again encourage all who are at all interested in the subject to watch.
