Re: “Dystopian drama Level 16 is bleak and dull

It's not just trendy to make art about repressed women, it's trendy to make female empowerment movies in general now. The over saturation of this 'movement' is turning movie-goers off in droves. It really beguiles the the art of film making when every film is about a female lead character overcoming some sort of atrocity in order to gain some surreal independence. The same trite narratives that women have generally complained about in decades past have now taken a 180 and have in themselves become their own trite narratives. Every action film now requires a bad-ass female counterpart overpowering and defeating their enemies. Strong female leads don't require masculine traits or the perception of being discriminated against. Hollywood simply cannot seem to write a proper female character in general, it's either buttercup or Xena. These productions, and their sheer volume, may appeal to coastal elites, but the general viewing audience is turning away from this overused narrative.
