  1. Jupiter Ascending and the Female Gaze

    I’d actually argue that Jupiter Ascending is perhaps the most shamelessly Female Gaze-y sci-fi film ever made. Instead of presenting women as passive objects of sexual desire, that kind of lascivious attention is afforded to the film’s men. The women, meanwhile, are largely granted agency and autonomy through the film’s framing and presentation – they are the ones doing most of the looking, and it makes for a highly refreshing change of tack.
