Prince of Swine puts Hollywood and Feminists on Trial June 14
Prince of Swine will be available worldwide from June 14 on DVD, Blu-Ray, streaming on Amazon VOD, and streaming in Hi Def from Rhapsody Digital Entertainment.
- (1888PressRelease) June 12, 2012 - When Jiggle King Jerry Farber gropes a dimwitted B-movie starlet then fires her from his latest T & A extravaganza, an idealistic young attorney vows to bring him down and make him pay for the cruelty of swine everywhere. To do so she must make a deal with the Devil and get in bed with her new boss, another Prince of Swine who detests everything she stands for.
"Prince of Swine boldly offers a controversial and politically incorrect statement about the relationship between men and women. It puts feminism on trial, and the verdict is that feminism has become a big joke." The Indie Fest Film Awards Winner
"Piggish Hollywood put on trial." The Village Voice
"Toma easily captures the vibe of what it's like to be a girl in this town, especially a girl who wants to be famous, by any means necessary." Campus Circle
"Reading about the film and all of the controversy surrounding it, you would think it's basically a comedic porn film..." Movies Made Me Do It
"All the world's a stage-and pimps and whores its players. At least that's the equation that seems to sum up Mark Toma's mirthless, relentlessly cynical comedy Prince of Swine. In what's both the ultimate and the obvious metaphor for Tinseltown success, Hollywood is indeed a harlot in Toma's film, as is the law, and, whether they want to be or not, so are most of the women. Of course, the men hardly get off any easier." Slant Magazine
"It's clear, however, that the real villain is not randy producers but mouthy feminism, as the lawyer's crusade is repeatedly undermined by a succession of dumbed-down, stacked-up women who behave exactly like the stereotypes that the male characters demean. This warped viewpoint - expanded upon in an all-too-enlightening interview with Mr. Toma on the film's Web site - results in a film with nothing to please the eye and even less to excite the mind."
