hard to watch and depicts the depth of cruelty and toxicity in men. i appreciate that all the violence depicted in this movie is emotional, as that is not often depicted, and i like that the only woman in the movie emerges from it as the strongest character, but i am becoming convinced as time goes on that LaBute is less interested in deconstructing masculinity and just attracted to sociopathy
A static, unshowy, contemplative camera watches as the idea of human decency is laughed at and ground into the dirt. In some ways Chad is like Hank Quinlan; domineering, despicable, utterly convinced by his own hype. But LaBute is far more willing than Welles to suggest that this supposedly aberrative evil is not only the dark side of, but also the logical conclusion to, the society that bore it.
Una lectura sobre el resentimiento de género. Un par de hombres, desde su personalidad emocional, depuran sus dolencias hacia una mujer. "En compañía de hombres" muestra por un lado la fragilidad de uno y la perversión de otro. Lo atractivo del fime de Labute es por momentos parecemos contemplar un romance real. Todo, sin embargo, es un evento enfermizo o canalla. Está también su modo narrativo secuencial dialéctico.
You know why I'm still chipper, big grin on my face, Howie? Because I realized something. I figured this out a month ago. I came home and Suzanne was gone. Left me a futon and my poster of 'American Gigolo.' Bitch even took the frame off it. I'm standing there, no note, nothing. You know? And it comes to me... the truth. I don't give a shit, not about anybody. A family member, a job, none of it. I couldn't care less.
preaching to the choir film making: corporate dudes are the worst kind of jerks. Rally I had no idea ? Women can feel good knowing men are monsters. men for not being the guys in the film and critics for defending something so politically incorrect. Without anyone learning anything new.
