                                            Dogma (1999)

A movie that bothered me a great deal was "Dogma."  Lauded for its spoof on religion and the Catholic church... there was one scene of such obvious male bashing than it still bothers me.

One of the angels is about to commit judgement (murder) on a board room of corporate folks.  There's 1 woman and 6 men in this evil board room. 

The angel goes from man to man, reciting all his sins (embezzlement, adultery, whatever) until he gets to the woman.  I was waiting to hear what horrible thing she did... but the angel says to her: "You lived a pretty good life."

The angel then murders the men and lets the woman live.

Is a woman incapable of corruption or evil?  I don't think so.            - Reviewed by: Dayenu.
