Asking For It Review: Jumbled Editing Spoils Femme Revenge

A sexually assaulted waitress joins a group of female vigilantes that target violent and chauvinistic men. Asking For It is an ultra-stylized take on the effects of toxic masculinity. Sexual predators get their comeuppance from bad-ass women who are out for blood. The film’s themes are laudable. But the plot's execution feels like a TikTok video on meth. A non-stop barrage of quick-cut edits, still frames, jumbled imagery and a pounding soundtrack become bewildering. The filmmakers needed to focus more on substance than gimmicks.
