New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: In the Cut (2003)

By Andrea Thompson

Seeing as how Valentine’s Day is next week, I thought I’d devote this week’s column to my more cynical side before I went all-out romantic for the holiday next week. So why not Jane Campion’s 2003 film “In The Cut,” an erotic thriller that is also a kind of anti-love story? If that sounds hard to pin down, that’s because it is, and critics seemed mostly unimpressed by it when it first came out. But “In the Cut” seems to be among a kind of cadre of films directed by women in the early to mid-2000s, such as “Jennifer’s Body” and “27 Dresses” that are being rediscovered and reconsidered in light of our current times.
