the women of 1995 movies


the quick and the dead (1995) | dir. by sam raimi

this movie is like the comic book version of a western:

  • it has a kickass female lead character out for revenge
  • it has a hot priest looking for redemption for his past sins
  • it has leonardo dicaprio when he was young and cute and charming
  • oh yeah and the priest is played by a bb russell crowe
  • it has gene hackman as an all-time great villain
  • it’s full of tropes and clichés but doesn’t take itself too seriously
  • actually it’s full of zooms and pans and gimmicky comic-y camera stuff
  • not good: there is off-screen sexual violence against a minor char
  • good: the rapist GETS SHOT IN THE BALLS bc of it. by a woman.
  • westworld, if you want to do it, that’s how you do it

seriously, go watch it.
