Honestly, kind of shocked how Tasha lists MOTHER!, PHANTOM THREAD, & I, TONYA but doesn't even acknowledge the problem many people have with all three films: they either have a questionably misogynistic view of their leading female characters or don't treat their problems with the respect they deserve. I hoped that someone else on the roundtable would've discussed these problems, but not a peep.
SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED MOVIES:
Both MOTHER! and PHANTOM THREAD don't investigate the central female characters beyond their relation to their man. Their goal is to love a man who is withholding love for them because they're obsessed with their art. Regardless of how innovative in style they are, the core narratives of these films have not only been done before, but are pretty repugnant.
I TONYA, on the other hand, gives full breadth of who Tonya Harding is as a person, but repeatedly shows her being brutalized in domestic abuse over and over, sometimes playing it for macabre laughs. I don't know what more there is to gleam from showing the nth time a woman is beaten other than to feel hollowed out by the casualty Gillespie employs in his form with it. I would feel like there could be a point to these excessively violent scenes if there were any commentary on them, but there's barely any.
