Why praise a movie that panders, with a symbolic pat on the head, to the audience it is supposed to empower?
The film is ironic, satirical, and just plain weird, but it’s a riveting, unblinking rebuke of society’s willingness to commercialize a traumatized girl.
This is a too long, too weak, too confusing jumble of characters and ideas that most outside of the hardcore Harry Potter fan base will struggle to find any enjoyment.
There real problem with this one is its indifference. The movie is mostly just a lot of noise and a lot of style over substance, resulting in a whole lot of bored audiences.
