Elizabeth Wood United States, 2015

El Biffo's rating of the film White Girl

Seems like Wood was trying to make something like a Larry Clark film or Requiem For a Dream, but this lacks the style or punch of those. A lot of sex and drugs, albeit decently photographed, doesn't make for a great film (is snorting drugs off a penis supposed to be "edgy"?), and the message could have been delivered instantly and more succinctly if the title had been "Stoopid White Girl". 2.5 stars
