Mercury In Retrograde (2018) REVIEW – Character Study Fails To Do Justice To Most Characters
By Andrea Thompson
ormally when I say a movie is sexist, it’s because the female characters are treated badly. But Mercury In Retrograde doesn’t do its male characters any favors either. At a certain point in the film, it’s remarked that not every activity has to be gendered. But gender is the lens through which director and writer Michael Glover Smith sees his characters. It’s both incredibly limiting and inescapable for all of them.
