" I've never seen Straw Dogs so I can't comment directly but I've never been swayed by the misogyny arguments of movies. If a female character is, like you say here, ogled and bitchy, the world is up in arms but you look at the portrayal of men in these kinds of films and they're usually slimy rapists, meek beyond all reason or ridiculously violent and yet no one claims it to be a misandristic (if that's how it's even spelled) portrayal. Moving tangentially, there's plenty of reasoning behind the idea of poorly written female characters, but then you get movies like Kill Bill or Resident Evil which just flip the gender roles and suddenly everything is OK. "Great point. Especially in Straw Dogs, you should really watch it, everyone in the film is portrayed as assholes, murderers, rapists or all three.
