Sarah Butler, Sarah Butler who is star of the upcoming I Spit on Your Grave remake, talks about what it was like to speak to the role of such a film described as the cult classic 1978 for a remake of modern times. The actress, who plays a rape victim who turns the tables on his assailants, “said WTSP Tampa Bay,” It’s a total honor as an actor. ”
The original film has been the bane of the existence of film critics Siskel and Roger Ebert Gene when he was initially published. Late home from the horror movie night coming to the defense of the film. ”
“I could make an argument strong enough for it to be a feminist tract,” writes Joe Bob Briggs in a column of 2002 promoting the Millennium Edition DVD release. “In fact, when it was first published in 1978, the title was the Women’s Day. If you take Susan Brownmiller, Andrea Dworkin and Gloria Steinem, and asked them to come with their version of the worst true nature of rape, it would probably look a lot like what happens to Jennifer Hill, the writer’s independent-minded New York magazine who rents a summer house in the country … and brutally assaulted by the mob local pond. ”
Butler says the new film is “almost identical” to the original in terms of plot. “One of the biggest updates we’ve done for her is that instead of approaching his revenge by using her sexuality as a weapon in our version, I do not like it at all. I use my cunning and my strength to capture and torture and kill these men. It’s a big difference. ”
Siskel and Ebert that identification criticized the original with the rapists. Briggs disagrees. “I looked at this shot by shot several times today, and (the prosecution) is totally false. There is no doubt, the opening sequence of the film shooting by closing the story is told from the point of view and one point of view – the woman is not only that, but During the actual sequence rape, beatings of view are drafting plans VICTIM-view.
The original director, Meir Zarchi, got the idea when he saw a battered woman nkd* out of a city park. He called for help and assistance. The experience shook him and led to the 1978 film. Its purpose was to show how experience is horrible.
“At the end of the film,” Roger Ebert wrote, “I left the theater quickly, feeling unclean, ashamed and depressed.”
Briggs argued that such a reaction could have come only from Ebert if he identified with the rapists. “This woman in the film Triumph,” Briggs wrote. “This is no different, really, that” Death Wish “or” Dirty Harry “.
Butler insists that this new version scales back on the gratuitous nudity, but it is still very much in the tradition of brutal cold and the original. After seeing the new version for the first time, Butler said, “I really cried for several minutes when I was raped. In fact, I was able to disconnect myself in the film and noticed it really for me. “
