Catfight Directed by Onur Tukel
The writer and director, Onur Tukel, displays virtuosic cleverness in his resourceful replenishment of the characters’ wells of pain. He conjures cruelty and bitterness—as in Ashley’s tense relationship with her blithe assistant, Sally (Ariel Kavoussi)—by way of saccharine irony. Nonetheless, the film’s observations don’t offer much depth or substance; the contemplation of destructive behavior in private mirroring destruction at an international level is sharp but hollow.

The world Tukel creates is one that is falling apart quickly. The country’s atmosphere is that of Total War. The self-involved populace adjusts to it. “Catfight” shows that civilization is an extremely fragile veneer over a pit of seething venom… It’s not the story of two gals who hate each other and then realize, over appletinis, how much they have in common. Tukel takes that tired cliché and blows it to smithereens. Let’s hear it for unvarnished hatred expressed with no holds barred.

Veering between clunky social commentary and inspired observation (like a hilarious skewering of Brooklyn baby showers), “Catfight” is an acid attack on callous privilege. And if it seems to take a little too much pleasure in the sight of women waling on each other, it also serves as a proudly unsubtle reminder of the fragility of civility. If we need one, that is.
