What’s Charlie’s Angels really all about? By “Ogochukwo Umeadi”

As you self-quarantine, ponder on this cinematic truth:

What’s Charlie’s Angels really all about?

I don’t expect you to know the answer to that question.

Especially if you are yet to see it.

However, I’d like you to pretend you’re a great cinephile, who knows a lot in cinema like Tarantino, Scorsese, Spielberg etc., and ponder about it.



While you are on it, let me take you down memory lane on how I came to watch it.

You see, I’ve had a copy of it, for like a week or two. Maybe three. I can’t say for certain.

Each time I want to watch it, I’ll be like: “this film go boring o. Make I leave am fes watch another thing.”

I’ve done it like a million and one times.

So, few days ago. I just dove right in and watched it.

Director Elizabeth Banks did a marvelous job. Scratch that. She f*cking killed it!

On the surface, Charlie’s Angels is a film about a bunch of beautiful girls running around and stopping criminal bad guys but deep down it’s a foreshadow of the coming matriarchy.

Banks is a mistress of her medium. She took us on a heart-thumping adventure with her angels and while doing that inveigled some messages in it as well.

It takes a great deal of craftsmanship to entertain folks with a beautiful story but it takes sheer genius to smuggle one’s belief and worldview in the story while doing so.

This is the kind of cinema I wanna make..

The film basically puts the final nail in a patriarchal world.

Thank you, Ms. Banks. I got your message.
