Look, it’s easy to hate Sucker Punch. Easy, but wrong, for reasons I lay out here. Here’s another (NSFW for language) revisionist take on the film, this time in video form. For the record: I don’t agree with every argument made in this piece (I think the whole argument about the various waves of feminism is a reach), but it gets at an important aspect of Zack Snyder’s most underrated work, namely the way he’s playing with formal conventions of perspective on film. Critics didn’t get Sucker Punch the first time around, dismissing it as brainless titillation. They will come around. In time.
