Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017)

Director: Angela Robinson. Cast: Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, Connie Britton, Oliver Platt. 108 min. Rated R. Biography.

Another Wonder Woman movie, by another female director, in the same year, but vastly different. Real-life story of a psychology professor, inventor of the lie-detecting machine, who enacted his unwelcome theories on human behavior (in my viewer and even his wife character's opinion, another excuse for his sexual escapades) through the most famous comic book super-heroine of all time - including illustrations of bondage of sadomasochism. Wonder Woman's lie-detecting magic lasso was an interesting trivia point, but at the end (especially that ending), you're not sure why you should be rooting for these characters ... because they're not sure themselves.
