Poster for Catfight

A reunion between university chums played by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche sparks a no-holds-barred war of attrition in this outrageous black comedy. More

"One-time college pals Veronica (Oh) and Ashley (Heche) run into each other at a party. The women, now in their forties and having not seen each other since school, find that their lives have taken radically different paths. Ashley is barely scraping by as a painter of politically charged canvases, while Veronica is married to a wealthy businessman who's about to profit hugely off yet another US-led war in the Middle East.

"Within minutes of their reunion, a rivalry is revived, old wounds are torn open, and a Manhattan stairwell becomes home to a woman-on-woman brawl. Over the course of five years and three bloody, bone-crushing rounds, Catfight's formidable adversaries will lose everything they cherish, and rail furiously as their fortunes are subject to wild reversals." (Toronto International Film Festival)

It has a certain outlandish purity of purpose which Heche and Oh follow through on with demonic intensity, making for a film that's just as hard to embrace as it is to dismiss.

The absurdist use of fisticuffs in Onur Tukel's extremely independent Catfight is unnerving, strangely hilarious - and, whether you accept it or not, meaningful.

Catfight will turn off many from the outset (there were many walkouts during the screening I attended) but its strange combination of brutal physical comedy and pitch black satire make it an oddity worth fighting over.

...an acquired taste for sure, but the movie and its must-see performances are so far out there they virtually guarantee a certain cult cachet.
