      • Apr 06, 2018

        Inspired by a true story, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is fascinating biopic about the man who created the DC superhero Wonder Woman. The film follows Harvard psychologist William Marston as he works to develop a lie detector machine and forms a polyamorous relationship between himself, his wife, and a student, which leads to him becoming a pariah in academia and taking up comic book writing. It also attempts to link the sexual overtones in the Wonder Woman comic to Marston's DISC theory and the sexual proclivities of his relationship with his wife and student. Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote all give strong performances and have good on-screen chemistry. However, before long it drops the facade about being about the Wonder Woman comic and frame story about the its fight with the comic code authority, and just becomes blatant polyamory propaganda. Still, propaganda aside, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is an interesting (if not over romanticized) look at the inspiration behind one of the most influential feminist icons of the 20th century.

        It's not often a movie can make me feel An Emotion(TM), but with Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, I sure did. It doesn't exploit those avenues as well as it perhaps could have, and feels underdeveloped in a great many of its aspects, but still as both biopic and character drama, Wonder Women is a success. There are better movies than Professor Marston and the Wonder Women out there for a person to watch, but its hard to imagine there being one more timely.

        "When are you going to stop justifying the whims of your cock with science?" This movie gets 3.5 stars for that line of dialogue alone.

        Given the subject matter this movie really needed a less conventional approach.
