Captivity

1

Poor Elisha Cuthbert. It’s sad that this clearly smart young woman has been so duped into justifying this loathsome slop of nasty misogyny. “I don’t just want to play the pretty girl,” she says in a Q&A. “I want to do something more interesting.” Shabby kidnap drama Captivity is only ‘interesting’ in the sense that it’s directed by The Mission’s Roland Joffe. Clearly, Joffe is either working with a gun to his balls or he’s too down on his luck to reject this Russian-US mutant that was recut from psycho horror to Saw-riffing torture-porn on the insistence of distributors.
