Rating. Pornography and Misogynist
22 January 2018 | by ecarrozzaSee all my reviews

I'm sorry I watched any of this filth. And why is there no rating? I love these movies that claim they are artistic when in fact the scenes I witnessed have no respect for women. Period. The sex scenes which are full close ups of a woman's crotch and then a close up of a vaginal delivery w hemhroids and a dr shoving fingers into the woman's anus are disrespectful and seem more about gore and disgust for women's genitalia. Why do we never see the penis! I read once the penis was considered a threatening object. Anyway, I'm sick and tired of movies and reviews claiming this is art. It's not. It's pornography and misogyny. This writer/producer hates women.
