All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Consider this movie a kind of Fight Club for women. (and that is over simplifying the complexity and doing it an injustice) It's done differently, a bit more Matrix-y and much more in the style of a comic book....BUUUUUUUUUUUT...
The movie covers the same themes of identity, perspectives of reality, and so on. The difference between the two is while Fight Club is male oriented and done from an interiorized style of description, Suckerpunch does it well with eyecandy. The dance sequences are something that anyone who has done astral or semi-kaballic pathworking will recognize right away as familiar in the way they move
So if you're a woman who didn't like Fight Club, watch Suckerpunch and then go back and watch FightClub without a man in the room, and strip out the genderizations.
If you're a guy who doesn't like "grrl" movies, do the same.
I'll write a more in depth commentary about how you can apply some interesting observations that apply to the notions of right-hand and left-hand path and why some feel the need to force a set of genitals on a way of thinking.
Fight Club's question is "Who Am I", and gets answered by figuring out "What do I want?"
Suckerpunch's question is "What do I want" and gets answered by "Who Am I?"
Nuff said. Grab your cuddle buddy and your popcorn.
I wanted to punch the main characters face all the time very urgently, with my fucking fist or with an iron skillet, I did not care.
But I can relate to fight club. I am not much of a dancy dance person.
Marie, I agree with you and I don't.
The BabyDoll was way too pristine and angelic, as was her character, but then so was her character and concept, if youthink about it. She was an "angel" of a kind, and her "creation" is not only perfectly outlined as too why/how they come about, but also how people can't separate themselves from them and the reasons why.
Besides, as the hints throughout the movie suggest, and the end makes clear...she wasn't really the main character:D
bad ass movie loved every second of it
hell i boaiught the crazy bunny shit.
