Storyline

Entrapped in his apartment, Randal Hendricks, a recent paraplegic, is given a gift of binoculars by his devoted girlfriend, Pam. But Randal is in financial debt to Emmie, a sadistic loan shark, and when he witnesses a powerful criminal, named Lawyer, commit murder while observing his neighbours through binoculars, he initiates a treacherous blackmail scheme. Involving Warren, his halfwit friend with unabashed lust for Pam, is probably going to cost him, but with few people to turn to, Randal does it anyway and as circumstances become more complicated, Pam is embroiled in the unravelling chain of events. Before long, a detective, named Gail February comes snooping around the neighbourhood, looking for the missing corrupt cop - her partner. As Lawyer begins his own investigation in an attempt to find his blackmailer, Emmie compounds the pressure of his looming deadline, and Detective February's investigation draws her ever closer to Randal, the wheelchair-bound Randal must rely on the ...

The interesting gender dynamics
18 February 2019 | by rebeccalprice-12412See all my reviews

If you like movies that seem like they are about one thing and then are actually about another, then Number 37 is the movie to watch. Number 37 is about a man in a wheelchair who witnesses a murder and then decides it's a good idea to blackmail the murderer all while living on the same block as him. While the plot seems to focus on the suspenseful and crudely reckless plans of the protagonist, Randal, the film actually highlights the power dynamic between genders. The power dynamic between the men and the women in this film is fascinating as each male character is portrayed as this machismo alpha gangster, while every female character (including the clean cop) is portrayed as inferior and weaker to the men. The women allow the men tell them what to do, even if it means risking their own lives. This power dynamic and the way it is portrayed in this movie accurately depict the abusive gender dynamic often found in lower socioeconomic households, cultures, and cinema.
