    Maybe I didn't know Abel Ferrara as well as I thought I did. The violence and the style often aligns to his other films. But here he displays a variation in his understanding of character and perspective. A nuanced script that mixes both overt social commentary and a more subversive examination of rape culture. The sound design and score are both riveting.

    A girl walks home alone at night

  5. lucia lurzo's rating of the film Ms. 45

  6. msmichel's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Ferrara's masterful mix of exploitation cinema and feminism resulted in this impressive film that stands the test of time even in this more puritanical age. Zoe Lund is simply astounding in the title role. Ferrara has had a checkered career at best but this may be his greatest achievement.

  7. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Ms. 45

    It's honestly quite brilliant. Takes the concept of rape culture (before it was a verbalized concept) and dramatizes it. Very good work here from Abel. Ingenious really. 4.5

  8. S Campbell's rating of the film Ms. 45

    A revenge thriller with plenty going on and more credible than the dire Death Wish remake

  10. Disa's rating of the film Ms. 45

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Une série B qui a du punch !

  12. Gia de Almeida's rating of the film Ms. 45

    A heroine that sways from vigilante to cold blooded killer without the film ever even suggesting the slightest hint of judgement, there isn't one single attempt to direct your opinion of the main character. That knife, being held like a penis, masculinity used as a weapon is pure gold. A nice take on rape culture, patriarchy, machismo and feminism.

  13. Ethan's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Zoe Lund gives an incredible performance in this gritty and raw revenge picture that at times feels like a spiritual sequel to Taxi Driver. Abel Ferrara is a truly underrated auteur.

  15. Rocco's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Could easily be regarded as a landmark in feminist cinema. Comparatively benign when viewed alongside its contemporaries, with sparing violence and a mad, mocking saxophone score. The poeticism of a gun standing in for the voice of a mute woman is still potent, and Ferrara's world of wheedling, slobbering males is both grotesque and all too real.

  16. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Ms. 45

    The greatest element of Ms. 45 is not so much its inspired riff on Death Wish from a feminist perspective, but actually Lund's character in terms of ever-changing sympathy. She can alternately be considered a gender avenging angel or a murderer, but where the former ends and the latter starts is debatable throughout each killing. It forces the viewer to think of how they themselves define equality every new death.

  17. Yumi Kaioh's rating of the film Ms. 45

    I love her face. Not impressed.

  18. Rūdolfs R. Vītoliņš's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Clearly influenced by Bronsons film Death Wish only this film shows mute girl who is raped twice in a row so she starts her own killing spree against men using magnum 45. In its way one of the best films about rape culture.

  19. Log Lady's rating of the film Ms. 45

    A classy exploitation flick, where forced silence has tragic consequences. The corruption of a soul that sees only one way out of her shame and pain. What a talent we lost in Zoë Lund. She conveys so many emotions in a single movie without uttering a word, and transforms herself from a timid girl into a vicious killer, whose motives we understand in our fantasies but reject in reality.

  20. Johnny Seeker's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Cute! But who are we kidding, men are the worst! Zoë Lund's face is just unforgettable!

  21. Wasunan T's rating of the film Ms. 45

  22. Janae's rating of the film Ms. 45

    Zoë Lund rules. Boys drool.

  23. unearthly_red's rating of the film Ms. 45

  24. jonijtr's rating of the film Ms. 45

    a truly rough film about both feminism empowerment and the rape culture oppressing them, almost every scene leave me uncomfortable no matter how exploitative-film like it was, every time Thana shots her gun, i felt more pity, because it means corrupting her more. but there's no other thing she can do, silence compel her, violence is the only answer
