Watch: Red Band Trailer for Jason Banker's 'Felt' from Fantastic Fest
"Everything is qualified by the fact that you don’t have a dick." Amplify Releasing has debuted a red band trailer for Jason Banker's Felt, a controversial and provocative indie film that premiered at Fantastic Fest last year. Felt broaches the topics of feminism and consent and sexuality, but dives in to the deep end with these topics, in what is described as a "feminist psychological thriller". Based on the real life experiences of Amy Everson, in the film a woman creates an alter ego in hopes of overcoming the trauma inflicted by men in her life. The cast in this includes Everson, Kentucker Audley, Ryan Creighton, Elisabeth Ferrara and Roxanne Lauren Knouse. If you're intrigued, give this a watch. Too experimental and wacky for my tastes.
Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence. Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn't just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off. Jason Banker's Felt arrives in limited theaters on June 26th.

Found this to be comical... "Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn't just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off." Oh by the way... the movie was made by this guy, Jason Banker... just another example of aggression in a male dominated society.

She seems mellow.

Beginning did look/sound like it was just pandering to feminists (without saying anything new), but from the moment she puts on that crazy costume the trailer starts to look promising. Kind of like a better version of Trash Humpers or something... Could be good if it won't try to forcefully cut any interesting story it might've had into an obvious propaganda message. I guess I'll wait for some reviews.

I don't know, looks very confusing. But still interesting. And no, not all of men are rapists. That's, I don't know, just psychotic ...
