Lizzie Borden United States, 1983

Renton47's rating of the film Born in Flames

An important historical document that works best to illuminate the discourse of radical feminism in its period, and a good example of revolutionary text creating the language of new order. It's a shame then only that the language is not a wholly engaging technique. Sci-fi largely in the Atwood sense (speculative), an attack on so many liberations which leave things unchanged. More important than enjoyable.
