Director: Mimi Cave
Year Released: 2022
"Independent woman" Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) who doesn't need a man (but kind of wants one) has a meet-cute moment in a grocery store with Steve (Sebastian Stan), a surgeon, who offers to take her on a "secret trip" (red flag!) ... and then she winds up chained to the floor. It doesn't even try to be subtle with its misandry (one woman openly says it's never "our fault" and it's "always theirs" ... which is pretty unfair, to put it mildly) but at least it has the nerve to actually be grizzly, with Noa going in full survival mode and sharing several "romantic meals" with Steve in which they consume the flesh of other (dead) females. It doesn't have the edgy humor of Harron's adaptation of American Psycho, and there's no room in the middle for decency ... but it does take to task ladies who enable this kind of degeneracy. As Tegan and Sara once asked, 'where does the good go?'
