It’s a known fact that in recent times the female revolution has reached peak levels of vengeance. If not, just check out the Kill Bills or all of the rape and revenge updates. In the case we’re dealing with here, women are also formidable. We are in New York, where two girls make murder the core of their binges. Their target is, of course, men. Closer to a psychological thriller than to action without rhyme or reason, Girls Against Boys is a film with impeccable aesthetics and timing, which combines black humor with introspective passages, and that holds in store a tremendous final twist.
Chick couldn’t have had a better debut. In 2002 he turned up at the Sundance with the big hit XX/XY. He also directed August (08) and is the producer of Sidney Lumet’s last movie, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (07).
