Photocall for the film “Holy Spider” at the 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes
What’s fantastic about Holy Spider is the fact that Abbasi actually shows them here. These women, not just anonymous victims, have different personalities, struggles and varying approaches to the profession that – in the eyes of many – has already rendered them “worthless”. Once again, and who knows if it will ever change, it’s females who are the source of all evil and must be discreetly disposed of. Not their brutal clients, not their accusers, not even their killers. It’s always their fault, and the streets must be purged of depravity.
