Did You Know?


In an August 2018 interview, Chloe Grace Moretz said that she didn't want the film to be released at all. Moretz stated that "I don't think it's time for them to have a voice", a clear reference to Louis CK's real-life behavior that led to the distributor cancelling plans to release the film in November 2017. The film's rights were bought back by CK (he gave back the same amount that Orchard Pictures had paid for original distro rights) and how it will be released in the future, or at all, is undetermined.

A daring subject fearlessly handled
18 December 2017 | by yogesh-3See all my reviews

Ok, the film was imperfectly and somewhat hastily delivered and does not deserve a high rating in its present form. The editing is decidedly uneven and Louie's sidekick's (I forget his name) performance entirely unnecessary, gross and completely over the top. This character actually contributes absolutely nothing to the film and detracts badly from its important message in these turbulent times.

The film's obvious weaknesses are most unfortunate, as the material itself is thought provoking, intelligently presented and actually NEEDS to be discussed this fearlessly, this openly in a time, where closed-minded prejudice and irrational fear inhibit rational thought.

Louie's fearlessness in the face of all the angry adversity should actually be admired if we dare to admit for one single moment to what extent our own sexual inclinations are forces that exist that are almost unmanageable. The scene of the girl's apparent surrender to John Malkovich is brilliantly depicted and, in a way, says it all. Yogesh
