Sucker Punch

Rated NR 2011


Pitched as The Wizard of Oz meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in Moulin Rouge—with samurai swords and machine guns—director Zack Snyder's hyperkinetic fever-dream mash-up of just about every genre, ever, is sharply dividing audiences. Is it a misogynistic exploitation flick, bereft of creativity and masquerading as a "girl power" message movie; or, a paean to imagination, and brilliant deconstruction of cinema in the age of video games. Uh, yes? Did I mention there's a dragon fighting a B-25 bomber? Comparisons of Sucker Punch have been made to Inception, but the real touchstone is Terry Gilliam's Brazil.
