Erin and Paul review two films about beautiful female vigilantes. First: MS. 45, Abel Ferrara's 1981 feminist exploitation classic about a meek, mute seamstress in New York's garment district who transforms into an angel of vengeance after a pair of violent sexual assaults; then, SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE, Park Chan-Wook's stylish 2005 melodrama about a freshly paroled female prisoner with a complicated, long-gestating plan to get revenge on the man who actually committed the crime she was convicted of. Thick red lipstick or blood-red eyeshadow: which will prevail?
Plus our quick takes on GONE GIRL, THE BOXTROLLS, PLUSH, FOXCATCHER, and MAPS TO THE STARS.
