Most wrote Korine’s film off as mindless cheesecake missing the idea that these girls were operating almost entirely of their own agency, even as regards to sex (as much as they talk about sexual liberation, they never actually have intercourse until the end of the film).

But I want to lay these out first -- because they're so vital to solid message writing -- and we'll get into the "whys" and the "hows" in a moment.

I was going to write about something else today -- I have a couple of big-concept posts I've been meaning to write up and get around to -- but, heck, the last post I put up was a big-concept post so I figured let's have a quick breather from that and get something a little lighter up first.
