A new movie called “Poundcake” has an interesting premise: it’s a slasher movie where the victims are all straight white men.
There’s discussion among some characters about whether or not the murders are a HOAX to gain sympathy for cisgender white men, and have people stop seeing them as oppressors.
Then there’s the question of whether ALL white guys are bad. As one character puts it, “Just because I’m rich and hot and white doesn’t mean that I’m some kind of monster…
“I care about civil rights, women’s rights, transgendered rights, even…and Me Too. I care about Me Too. I stopped watching Louis C.K. because of that. That was hard for me. I love Louis.”
The movie will debut at a film festival in Seattle this weekend. There’s no word when it’ll be more widely available.
