I wanted to share a few pieces that I’ve had published recently. The first is an article about Promising Young Woman, a film that I keep thinking about days after I’ve seen it, especially its haunting and (maybe?) problematic ending. The film stars Carey Mulligan as Cassandra, a med school drop-out who seeks vengeance against men from a traumatic event in her past. We’ve seen plenty of female revenge films prior, but there’s something about this film and Mulligan’s performance that stands out. My article for Signal Horizon explores toxic masculinity and trauma in the film. You can read it here.
Additionally, I wrote about one of my favorite films from last year, After Midnight, for Signal Horizon. You can read that article here. After Midnight is set to drop on Shudder in the coming weeks. Make sure to see it if you have that streaming service.
