If you believe some of the reviews on IMDb, you'll think the second half of this documentary is some kind of feminist rant. It's not. Some of the documentary's interviewees merely mention misogyny and feminism, which isn't so unusual considering the themes of Alien include rape and pregnancy, and considering the movie gave us one of the most famous female action heroines in cinema history in the form of Ellen Ripley. Why do some reviewers believe the second half of this doc is a feminist rant? Because that's when they switched it off. That's how sad and pathetic those reviewers are. Clearly they have no females in their lives they feel inclined to stand up for.
If you love Ridley Scott's Alien as much as I do, you'll undoubtedly enjoy this documentary, though more casual fans might find it too in-depth. You might want to steer clear of it if you can't bear hearing mention of the word "misogyny" too.
Real men support feminism. They don't feel threatened by it and frightened of it like some of the snivelling incel reviewers on IMDb obviously do.
