COLLIDER: 'Bloody Hell' Review: Maddie Ziegler Struggles with Womanhood in Coming-of-Age Story | SXSW 2023
March 14, 2023
"There’s much to love about Bloody Hell. McGlynn uses her film to denounce gynecological violence and show how medical tradition helps to reduce women to how their genitals can be used the male pleasure or reproductive functions. The movie also explores how pornography can lead young people to understand sex as a performance when it should be a fun experience where people give each other pleasure. In fact, the film also challenges the conservative vision of sexuality by showing how sexual relationships can exist without any kind of penetration, which should be common knowledge but is still controversial."
