Sucker Punch: CFQ Spotlight #10
Dan Persons and Steve Biodrowski narrowly avoid a sucker punch to the solar plexus as they dodge and feint their way through an examination of Zack Snyder’s new CGI-laced fantasy action pic. Is SUCKER PUNCH a female empowerment flick or another male fantasy about hot chicks in skirts wielding weapons? Is it an original vision for the 21st Century, or is it a rehash of a dozen other flicks (BRAZIL, DRAGONSLAYER, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, MOULIN ROUGE and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, to name a few)? Does Emily Browning have more than one expression, and is Scott Glenn ready to star in THE IGGY POP STORY? These and other questions are asked, if not necessarily answered in the Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast #10.
