Movie Analysis : ' I Spit On Your Grave '

- 1978’s I Spit on Your Grave is one of the most controversial films ever released as it depicts sexual violence in a crude –and lengthy— manner. It was critically panned upon release, Roger Ebert even calling it “so sick, reprehensible and contemptible”.

The film inspired many debates, some claiming it to be exploitative of sexual violence against women, others claiming it is explorative. While it would be difficult to argue the film is enjoyable, going as far as claiming the film is exploitative and misogynistic shows a thorough lack of understanding of the film’s depth and implications....   [tags: Violence, Abuse, Film, War rape]
