Revolution and Beer film Review: Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson, No sexism here. Ignore the marketing of her round pouting breasts bouncing in a suggestively see-through designer tee-shirt, tight jeans and a lusty sex-bitch stare. Pretend scenes don’t glorify middle aged white male gun porn or rape fantasies, or stereotypes of dumb girls getting too-smart for their own good or the Hillary Clinton-esque iconography. Obviously that is meant for women. Simply, Johansson plays a woman who has the ability to use 100% of her brain, and the world wants to kill her for that. What could possibly be sexist about that? Isn’t that kind of what men, Republicans (Sorry, I repeat myself) and organized religions do now? Oh, by the way, apparently the film blows.
