Even those shows that centre on female characters rarely have quite such a tapestry of female relationships – as sisters, daughters, mothers, lovers, friends – or have those relationships be such a positive force in those characters’ lives. And how appropriate it is for a show that depicts the violation of female bodies to balance that by celebrating the connections between female hearts.
Remember that video where all those strangers kissed one another on film for the first time? Could anything be more beautiful than that? Yes. Something could.
My friend Max Landis made a video of strangers slapping each other. It’s by far my favorite thing he’s ever done. Here’s Max describing what he did:
"I gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face. No one was pressured, and everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit. To go beyond the parody for the full story of what happened, be sure to watch Point of Impact."
THIS IS A MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN THAT STRANGERS KISSING WHATEVER VIDEO. A MILLION TIMES BETTER.
