Gender II

film 3 of 4


Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 1, 2015

This very special film achieves a beautiful balance between story and style, content and form, message and manner. It’s also terrifically simple. We have that nice, textured old desk. We have a sketchpad, and this resourceful young woman doing these cool, agile, charmingly stylized drawings. There’s plenty to appreciate here, but Flawed really touches upon the obsessive nature of our low self-esteem, hinting at the damage that it can sometimes do to us. But the discussion of this hard, dangerous thing ends up being so gentle, so optimistic! If I may presume to make paternalistic recommendations, this film is just perfect for you young people. You’re loved, and lovable!

Proud to introduce the interactive version:
