As promised, this week BFFC tackle JOKER, covering every aspect of the film's message, method and madness. Discussed: the title character's lack of agency in his own story, creepy dancing, the film's extremely literal messaging, and the context of this film in today's culture.
Welcome to BFFC's first MINISODE! Rather than skip this week to align with upcoming releases, we've decided to take a dive into The Discourse™ surrounding the upcoming JOKER film. Included: the commodification of cancel culture, how context influences the filmgoing experience, and the meme / internet life cycle.
This week, BFFC watch HUSTLERS ! Topics covered include the concept of truly mature female-centered film, modern female fantasy, and JLo's serious back muscles.
PS: BFFC has merch! Pick up a t-shirt, mug, tote, BEACH TOWEL, and more at our brand new store: badfeministfilmclub.threadless.com/
In a short but sweet episode, BFFC tackles READY OR NOT, a smart horror film with a dark (very dark) sense of humor. Discussed: 80s movie references, horror movie screams, tortured good guy + suspenders combos, and dark elf aesthetic.
By popular demand, BFFC tackles SPEED RACER, the technicolor, anti-capitalist fever dream you've been waiting for. Discussed: anime tropes, early green screen, and Wachowski core ideology.
This week, BFFC presents: Fast & Furious presents: HOBBS & SHAW ! It's all here, folks: transformer bikes, all-female Russian mobs, cyborg Idris Elba, and of course, FAMILY.
Fresh off a summer hiatus, BFFC returns with Quentin Tarantino's ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. Discussed: Tarantino's interest in re-imagining history, the politics of revenge and violence in film, the healthy portrayal of male friendships, and of course, FEET.
